Loose leaf rose scented black tea.

A fascinating tea from Yunnan Province in South West China, the region considered by many to be the birthplace of tea. Rich roils, mountainous terrain and a temperate climate have provided perfect tea growing conditions for many hundreds of years. Handmade using a traditional Chinese technique known as 'Toucha', a single rosebud is placed into black tea leaves and compressed into a heart shape. When infused in hot water, the rosebud delicately scents the strong, brisk black tea. Approximately 20 servings.

Loose leaf tea made simple. Take a look at our fabulous teapots (some come with a built-in strainer) and tea strainers.

Reviews

The first thing you’ll notice about this eye-catching tea is its one-of-a-kind appearance. The tea leaves, along with a single rose petal, are delicately compressed into a heart shape using the traditional Chinese technique known as Tuocha. This would make a wonderful gift for that special someone!

The resulting tea not only looks incredible, the flavour released by this golden blend is just as distinct. The fine golden-tipped leaves create a smooth and subtle nuttiness in the flavour, and the rose adds colour to the cup, as well as a delicate, floral fragrance.

YUNNAN TEA

Yunnan (or Dianhong) is one of China’s most popular teas and is considered to be a gourmet or high-end tea. It is grown in the Yunnan Province which is a vast mountainous area that borders Vietnam, Laos and Burma. Due to the elevated area and the warm and breezy climate that the tea is grown in, there is a longer than average growing period that produces a sweet, aromatic tea.

Yunnan is different to other teas grown in China due to the leaves, fine buds and golden tips, which produce a smooth, nutty taste. As is the case with Golden Heart Rose, it’s sometimes fermented with lychee, longan and rose, giving it a golden orangey hued colour.

WHAT IS TUOCHA?

Tuocha (or Pu'erh) is a different kind of tea processing technique that results in the leaves forming little bowl shapes, or what’s sometimes referred to as ‘bird’s nests’. It’s during the drying stage of production that this tea is rolled and pressed into shape, and it’s said that this allows the tea to dry more easily. The Yunnan province produces most of the world’s Tuocha.

GETTING THE BEST FROM YOUR GOLDEN HEART ROSE

You may have heard that loose tea really stands out as the best way to serve tea, and we have to agree. A cup of tea made from loose tea leaves is just that next level experience that truly brings out the full flavour of tea as it was intended to be enjoyed.

High quality loose tea leaves, such as those found in Golden Heart Rose, are hand-picked so that the finest buds and whole leaves are used. Much like a fine wine, extra care has been taken to make it, resulting in a tea that keeps hold of its distinct quality, flavour and characteristics.

Here’s a handy guide for preparing Golden Heart Rose:

Use fresh, clean water to help develop the flavour

Warm the pot or infuser first with a spot of boiled water

Use one heaped teaspoon of loose tea per person and one for the pot. Most people will consider this the ideal strength, but add more if you prefer a stronger flavour

We recommend that you allow loose tea to brew for 2-5 minutes. Try not to let the tea brew for too long in any case, as it can result in a bitter, oily taste

Loose tea should typically be enjoyed without adding milk or sugar
