Rose Pouchong

Catalogue code: 2180493
£7.95

Description

Fine grade, large-leaf Maofeng Keemun is naturally scented with freshly picked rose petals. Expect a high intensity of rose flavour perfectly balanced with dark chocolate and caramel sweetness of the tea base – almost the classical flavours of Turkish Delight in a cup. These innovative pyramid bags are spacious enough to hold whole leaves rather than the small cut tea in regular teabags. This makes a difference to the quality of the brew because whole leaf tea has more flavour and complexity.
Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

DelicateFragrant
Best-enjoyed black, our Rose Pouchong is made by interleaving rose petals with black tea as it dries. A few are left in for decoration, too. Subtle and drinkable, it pairs superbly with milk chocolate, gamey meats and fresh fish.

How to Brew

How to Brew

For every cup you wish to make, add a rounded teaspoon of leaves to your pot. Add freshly-boiled water, brew for 3-5 minutes, place your strainer over your cup and pour. For tea bags, simply brew in your cup for 3-5 minutes, remove and enjoy.
