Classic Chinese Rose Congou starts with the finest tea leaves pulled and twisted into unbroken strips. Once dried, the leaves are layered with rose petals and mixed multiple times to ensure the perfume of the flowers coats every leaf. The resulting cup of tea is richly golden in color with a delightful aroma and a taste akin to a rose blooming right in your mouth. Each sip is more warming and inviting than the last. Artificially flavored versions are often overwhelming and even soapy, but this blend is flavored in the traditional way, giving a natural and pleasant floral touch to your senses. This is a high caffeine tea, perfect for mornings when you're still fighting off sleep.

Lovely rose tea January 20, 2017
Reviewer: Jamie Hein from reisterstown, MD United States  
I used about 2 tablespoons of this tea to make a pitcher of sweet iced tea. It is so refreshing and not at all soapy like some rose teas. I tried it hot- also very good !

The best rose tea I've found November 5, 2016
Reviewer: Gregg Casillo from Fairfield, OH United States  
After enjoying a few ounces of this, I've tried other vendors' rose teas. They just don't stack up to Rose Congou. This is the perfect package of rose fragrance without overbearing sweetness. Appeals to the nose first and carries through truthfully to the palate. Will continue to order this in the future.

Great rose congou May 13, 2016
Reviewer: Zeynep Bursal from Lexington, MA United States  
A friend introduced me to rose congue tea, and I fell in love with its aroma, flavor and the residual taste. Once the box she gave me was finished, I looked on the web for a supplier, and decided to order it from Capital Teas. Short of picking it up in a store, the package came pretty quickly. I found the same wonderful aroma and flavor, and am continuing to enjoy this just perfect tea.

Rose Tea December 24, 2015
Reviewer: Mary from Chevy Chase, MD United States  
Excellent version - not too flowery. The tea taste predominates, with just a hint of rise -- more in the scent than on the tongue.

Favorite tea November 11, 2015
Reviewer: Lauren Shreve from Warrenton, VA United States  
This tea's rose bouquet is an experience unparalleled. I found the shop in Bethesda and discovered the tea there. I purchased 4 oz and it didn't last long... Since then, I tried to find anything like it at tea shops and was disappointed again and again. Finally, I ordered it online, have it now and order has been restored in my world. Thank you Capital Teas for making such an awesome product.
