SerendipiTea’s Rose Alongi is a blend of organic Chinese green tea and rose petals. The tea leaves on their own smell grassy. After it’s brewed, the tea smells like fresh roses with a definite (and pleasant) undercurrent of green tea.

This is a smooth and slightly sweet tea. It’s light-bodied and leaves a wonderful lingering clean/fresh taste. I think it makes a great afternoon tea to share with a loved one!

This tea has became one of my favorites and I drink a few of cups of it each week (usually paired with dark chocolate!).

It tastes best when prepared according to the package directions: warm up the teapot with hot (but not boiling) water and pour out, sprinkle bottom of pot with tea, pour in water, brew for 3 minutes, enjoy.

I love rose-scented Chinese green teas; I haven't tried this one but I've had consistently good experiences with teas from SerendipiTea. I also regularly like blending tea with whole rose petals on my own.

One thing that I love about rose is that it's such a strong, bold flavor. A lot of floral fragrances are fleeting; even when they're used to strongly scent teas, like Jasmine, it feels like they're placed on top of the tea. Something about rose is really deep and seems to balance with the base tea on its own level, which I think makes for a more enjoyable experience for me.

Alex, I love the idea of blending tea with rose petals at home. I've thought about trying it a time or two but just haven't done so yet. You've encouraged me to go for it. Thanks!
