In Greek mythology, it is believed that roses came into existence through the tears and the blood of Adonis, the lover of Aphrodite (the goddess of love). Cleopatra, who is known for her affairs, used loads of rose petals to cover her floor to scent the air romantic to woo Mark Antony. The origin of roses dates back to 35 million years. Its cultivation and gardening started around five thousand years ago starting in China. In the Victorian era, roses were even used as a mode of communication. Since then, different colours have got their meanings. Red for love, pink for friendship, and white for innocence. But that’s not all. The other ingredient that goes into this drink is Darjeeling black tea leaves. Though these leaves come from the Camellia sinensis plant, what makes it so special is the altitude, soil type, and climate that Darjeeling, India provides for an amazing cup of tea. As you try High Mountain Rose Darjeeling tea, the mix of Roses and Darjeeling tea will leave you in the land of floral fantasy.
There is a really intense taste to the tea. Even the shape of the teabag is such that it doesn’t float above the water, it sinks perfectly. I have tried a lot of flavours, each one is really natural and raw, it doesn’t have an artificial taste like most of the brands.
