Another classic black scented tea from the China Tea archives, sometimes known as Congou, known in the East as Meigir Hongcha, known in the East End as a cup of Rosy Lea! But we know it as Chinese Rose Petal. The red rose petals are layered with tealeaves during the withering process in a gloriously natural infusion of flavours to achieve just the right balance of flowery sweetness and a hearty tannin kick. When brewed exactly right it really is perfection in a cup. Err on the side of less is more, don’t overdose or over-infuse. It really should be drunk unadorned - it absolutely needs no further adulterants. As the ancient Chinese Proverb says: “Tea is Water – Enchanted”
