Drink of the Week: Dark Rose Tea

With the holiday season behind us, we think the Dark Rose tea from the TeaSource is the perfect way to kick-start 2011. Sourced from the Hunan Province in southern China, this tea is allowed ferment like a pu-erh, and it takes on similar earthy nuances. Blended with rose petals and compressed into small disks, this silky tea offers deep, floral aromas and full flavors of dried flowers and sweet cream. One disk yields multiple infusions, and the tea is equally delicious sipped solo or mixed with milk and sugar.
