Rose Black Tea has pink rose flower mixed in the tea leaves, carrying a strong fragrance of roses. After the Dian Hong black tea is made, the tea worker will add rose flower and pure rose extractives in to the tea, giving the black tea a rich rose scent. If you like high floral scent, this Rose Black Tea will be a good choice.
Our Rose Dian Hong Black Tea is analysed in accordance with the requirements of regulation (EC) 396/2005 (regulation on maximum residue levels in food and feed) in its currently valid version.

Our Rose Dian Hong Black Teas are produced by Fengqing which is located in the south of Dianxi Longitudinal valley, Fengqing is famous as the hometown of Yunnan black tea in Lincang and is one of the original places of tea in the world. In Fengqing lies a succession of mountains, which alternate with rivers. Fengqing has a long history of planting, producing and drinking tea. The Superfine Yunnan Dian Hong Black Tea was successfully produced in Fengqing in 1958, which then has a national reputation.
China is the birthplace of black tea, which in China is called, perhaps more appropriately, hong cha – red tea – after its the red colored tea it usually produces. It's history in China can be traced back to the late Ming Dynasty, around the year 1590, when the first black tea – Lapsang Souchong – was produced in the area around Wuyi Mountain in Fujian province. This high mountainous area was called Lapsang and the small leaf tea trees Souchong – hence the name. Today China's best and most well known black teas include Fujian Lapsang Souchong, Fujian Minhong, Anhui Keemun, Yunnan Dianhong, Guangdong Yingteh and Sichuan Mabian Gongfu black teas.

You're reviewing: Rose Dian Hong Black Tea
* Required Fields
Despite smelling so ethereal, roses can stand up to a lot, and they certainly are the dominant note in this Rose Dian Hong. Steeped Western style for three, five, and eight minutes, it has a lovely rose aroma and taste that are not quite balanced out by the Dian Hong base. (Maybe a smaller leaf variety would have had more oompf.) The black tea had given up its flavour by the third steep, but I can see the rose going on for a few more. This is a more elegant, laid-back kind of tea than I expected--more for sipping on a summer afternoon than for getting you up in the morning. I'm sure it would also be great iced. If you're like me and enjoy floral teas, you'll probably be happy with this one.
A delicious rosy tea – so very floral it surprised me; the second steeping was even better but just as fragrant and flavorful. Like a fancy afternoon dessert.
Magnificent tea. Strong black base with delicate rose flavor and refined aftertaste.
I recently sipped a sample of this and loved it so much I bought 100grams during the sale. I could tell upon opening that this was a different tea from the sample, even though they were both from 2015. The rose fragrance is very prominent in this one, where it wasn't before in taste or scent. The black tea seems different too. The leaves are larger here unless I'm remembering wrong, but the taste is definitely different though. The flavor is weaker now, like a light milky chocolate, when before the flavor was deeper and more complex - it seemed like it had elements of Keemun, Zheng Shan Ziao Zhong and sweet potatoes, which is why I liked it. I didn't even mind that the rose was mostly missing from the sample, since the base so good. Now the rose takes over the flavor of the tea. This one seems more like the Yun Nan Dian Hong Full Leaf blend, though I can't be sure. I'm disappointed it has changed from the 2015 sample! Steep #1 // 2 tsps. // 10 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep Steep #2 // few minutes after boiling // 3-4 min Harvest: 2015
I don't know why I expected the rose flavor to be as subtle as it is in Rose Ripened Puerh. There is much more rose flavor in this one, and that seems to give it even more body. It does not taste soapy or artificial to me, but natural. This is a lovely tea for people who like floral teas. I do!
This was the perfect choice yesterday, on a rainy day! I was hoping I could figure out if this rose blend has the base of another of Teavivre's Yun Nan Dian Hongs but it is so hard to tell! The dry leaves don't seem like any of the other Yun Nan Dian Hongs and the flavor doesn't seem like the others that I've tried but the flavor is GOOD. First of all, I didn't see much rose in my sample and it doesn't seem infused with any rose otherwise. So the rose isn't there at all. But I am perfectly happy with this as a Yun Nan Dian Hong. It is NOT really chocolate to me at all. The flavor seems like three different teas: the lightness and sweetness of a Yunnan, the lovely flavor qualities of a great Keemun, and the slight smokiness and other characteristics of a Zheng Shan Ziao Zhong (and the leaves look like the one Teavivre offers too.) Otherwise the flavor is malty sweet potatoes. It's an awesome black tea combo that hits many black tea cravings. I think I steeped the first cup perfectly. I want to drink 10 mugs full of this today. Steep #1 // half a 7 gram sample (about 2 tsps. for a mug) // 14 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep Steep #2 // few minutes after boiling // 3-4 minutes steep Harvest: 2015
A sample of the 2015 Rose Dian Hong tea generously arrived with my glass tea set order. The tea is very sweet and lovely rose-scented like the 2014 version as described below. The difference is this is now scented more strongly and sweetly (because it's fresher). I highly anticipate restocking this tea in the 2015 version (next order). I definitely recommend this tea, especially to those who like floral, soothing teas.
Seeing this tea on a 30% sale on Black Friday, I bought 100g to try this floral tea. It was definitely a great choice as this tea is now my 3rd favourite tea (behind jasmine teas). I would definitely recommend this tea to those who like floral and sweet, soothing teas. * * * Dry leaves: Black tea buds with pekoe are mixed in with many rose buds. Teavivre's proportion of rose buds was much more generous than other competitors. Well-chosen, the rose buds enhance the amazing floral aroma. * * * Aroma: Natural delicate, sweet rose. Flavour: Very floral (rose) and soothingly sweet. It strengthens and improves with longer steeping. Even with numerous re-steeps at ~95C, the tea never became bitter. Liquor: Light red to golden yellow. * * * Two test groups were brewed according to suggested ratio (1-2 tsp for 8oz of water, 2 min). Each had 1 tsp in 6oz water. One was steeped at 98C (boiling) while the other was steeped at 85C. Although steeping at the suggested temperature 85C yields a soother and more consistent rose tea, boiling water works wonderfully as well, especially if you're in a rush. The tea's steeping capacity is amazing. With the 100C tea sample, I refilled the cup 3 times (Total of 4 steeps). Each gave a different version of the rose tea in complexity and intensity. The tea never became bitter.
I really like floral teas in general so decided to get a sample of this with my last order. The black tea base is very nice, similar to the golden monkey but more bold and slightly astringent. There is a light floral aftertaste that I really enjoyed.. not too perfume-like. The cup I steeped didn't have any actual roses in it though so that may be why it's lighter. Also the scent decreases on the 2nd steep.
I like floral teas, so I had to try this one for my first sampling activity. The scent is lovely, it adds a nice rose aroma to my mug. There is a slightly sweet rose flavour that goes well with the black tea base.
