This unusual twist on the traditional green tea is a lovely surprise. On top of the bed of green tea, you will find apple pieces, rose petals, and flavors of lychee and rose. When brewed, you will notice flavors both sweet and tart initially, to be followed by notes of grape and melon. Culinarily speaking, roses are used in treats like jams, chocolates, pastries, and syrups. Lychee, a red, bumpy-skinned fruit, found its favor in ancient China, where it was prized for its sweet and sour flavor. Put them together in your cup, and you’ve got the perfect marriage. It is a lovely summer tea that many suggest pairing with raw honey. The sweetness of the honey complements the naturally occurring flavors in this tea and make this rosy and floral tea quite romantic. We highly recommend this as a change up for even the most seasoned of green tea drinkers!
