Employee Selections: Smell the Roses

We polled some members of the Octavia Tea family to see what their favorite teas are. Our hard-working staff drinks tea all day long, so they’re sure to have some great opinions!

Tracey has been part of the Octavia Tea family since October 2016:

“Roses have always been my favorite flower but never have I thought it would go great with tea too! Before working at Octavia and being introduced to a vast variety of high quality tea, I only drank herbal, preferably night time tea. Working here I discovered that oolongs are my absolute favorite. Only have tried oolongs like Amber Dragon and Phoenix Mountain, both crisp and smooth, I was hesitant to try a floral oolong.

Rose Oolong always caught my eye but I was always replaying in my head “What if it just tastes dirty?!”. Boy was I wrong! After steeping my tea, the pleasant scent of rose pulls me in. Once the first sip, reaches my tongue, I’m instantly taken to a rose garden in spring. Smooth, balanced flavors make this a delightful cup.

According to a press release by Whole Food’s team of global buyers, floral flavors are a trend for 2018. I recommend giving this a try! The Rose Oolong is available in a sample size (two to six servings), our signature silver tin, or bulk by the pound. Click here to learn more.
