Rosebud Black Tea is a private blend of Chinese whole leaf tea flavored with rosebuds & petals. Mild quiet essence of rose flavor with just a touch of cream. Hand-picked young rose buds in our Rosebud Black Tea create a wistful floral mélange.
Flavored Teas whether they be green, black, or other varieties of tea are all from the same camellia sinensis bush. The whole tea leaves are blended and nestled with real fruits, herbs, spices. Essential oils or essence of flowers and fruits are also used. This blending results in a change of flavor to the tea leaf. Creating a delightful and inspiring challenge to the taste buds.
Black tea is the well known and highly appreciated form of tea from the camellia sinensis bush. Black tea leaves have been fully oxidized producing a deep rich body, full flavor brew with a beautiful amber color. In contrast to green tea which has not been oxidized. Consistently green tea has a much quieter flavor of tea.
During the oxidation process, oxygen comes in contact with the enzymes inside the tea leaf. This contact produces wonderful deep flavors. The flavor of each black tea will vary depending upon the region in which the tea was grown, weather conditions, and then finally the preparation of the tea.
