Personally: It’s no secret that I love tea and I will solicit places to try their teas, especially if I find that they offer unique and premier tea and tea products. When I find a company like Serendipitea I’m intrigued by their products and of course I want to share. I love their website and please check it out, it’s original and interesting. Don’t miss the tea “stamps” at the bottom to direct you to different parts of the website as well as their foundation of their name Serendipitea.

Organic Rose Petals
COSTS: $12.00 – 3 ounce box
Price varies according to the amount purchased.
Prior to brew: Again another mix that is “chunky” and you can see the products, there is nothing like seeing what is in your tea and with this tea the chamomile stand out.
First scent of this tea is a perfume scent like a rose perfume. It’s a hearty blend.
Brewed: Mild Amber color
Scent: There is still that rose or perfume scent but it is not as pronounced I am sure this is because of the brewing of the other ingredients that bring out more of their scent in the tea, that is why just smelling a tea does not always embrace what the tea really is.
Flavor: This tea is a very sweet tea and surprise it’s not rose that I taste on first sip but a more of the mint with the underscore of rose but that mint really comes forward once brewed.
Sentiments: The fun part of trying new teas is the surprise after the brew and being part of the total growth of a tea. This tea will light your mouth with warmth and the calming benefits of the chamomile. A multi benefit tea with a great flavor and beautiful hue.
My Tea Vault score values of 1-10 (10 being the best): “8”.
Till next Tea….
