Our Natural Rose tea consists of two main ingredients (Rose Petals and Darjeeling Black Tea). It’s easy to see that, even through centuries and civilizations, the rose has maintained its status as the queen of flowers, but this is not just down to its divine and charming appearance. The rose matches its beauty with a sweet aroma and a depth of functional benefits that were carried alongside the flower through generations. Whereas certain teas are primarily consumed for taste and/or nutritional benefits, Rose tea is preferred for its aroma as its name may suggest. Drinking rose petals in tea originated in China. Rose tea is an important part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, where it is used to regulate Chi (life energy). Roses have been used for cultural and medicinal purposes for thousands of years. Indians have been using rose petals in foods and drinks for ages. Rose tea is also called ‘the lady’s tea’, as it is hailed as a natural treatment for women during their menstrual cycle and aids in enhancing beauty of their skin and face. Rose is virtually caffeine-free and a great beverage for people who want to avoid caffeine.
The story of Darjeeling tea started around 150 years ago where it was planted as an experiment in Darjeeling. Darjeeling, the land from where the name of the tea is derived, famously described as the champagne of teas is situated in the foothills of the Indian Himalayas. Most of the tea bushes in Darjeeling owe their origin to tea seeds that were smuggled from China nearly 200 years ago. Ranging from 100-4200 meters this mountainous region shares its borders with Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet. Darjeeling tea is made from Camellia Sinensis that is grown and processed in the Darjeeling or Kalimpong Districts of West Bengal, India. The tea leaves are harvested by plucking the plant’s top two leaves and the bud, from March to November. Darjeeling tea is a complex beverage that undergoes a delicate process of withering, oxidizing, and drying. Great care goes into the cultivation of Darjeeling teas since they have a much shorter fermentation window.
The Rose tea and the Darjeeling tea together make a great fusion where both of them share their individual benefits and create a blend that acts like an elixir for one’s body.
