Beautiful delicate tea

I love this tea as it’s delicate in flavour, with a subtle hint of rose. Lovely drank black or with a dash of skimmed milk. The best rose tea I can find

Amazing Tea

This tea is amazing, brews to a beautiful colour, smells fantastic and has a delicious, mildly floral, slightly citrus taste.
This is my new favourite tea.
Also delivery was nice and quick.

Love in a cup

This tea is truly beautiful, I tried a sample through a subscription box and I couldn't resist ordering a bigger bag. It manages to be both refreshing yet warming and soothing at the same time and can be drank any time of day. A lovely cup of tea

Distinct rose flavour anmd aroma

Unlikethe rose congou or rose pouchong sold by some other suppliers, this has a really distinct rose flavour and aroma. Quite 'scenty', as you might expect, but it makes a refreshing change for an afternoon tea.

Top Quality

My wife had Rose Congou tea in a tea shop and I managed to track it down to Tea Cakes of York. We have tried other versions of Rose Congou tea but this one is peerless
