June is rose month – but this lovely tea is perfect for sipping any time of year. In fact, for those of us who live in colder climes, winter might be more apropos. The reason? This tea has the ability to make any room burst with the aromas of the arrival of spring. Rose tea however, is not a new arrival to the world of tea. In China they have been drinking rose scented tea for millennia. In Britain, rose tea has been a staple of garden parties since the days of Queen Victoria. Just brew a cup, close your eyes, and take a sip. Where does this tea take you?
