About Vanilla Rose

Tea Type : White Tea

Tea Forté's Vanilla Rose is a delicately balanced white tea blend bringing together classic notes of vanilla, rose, and a hint of spice. This refined tea encompasses the elegance of English roses and mingles them with the indulgence of vanilla-dusted sweets at a garden party. Carefully curated with organic ingredients, it's a celebration of New York's finest botanical garden in all its historic glory.

White tea is a lesser-known form of tea harvested from the young leaves of the Camellia Sinensis -- the same plant that gives us black, green, and oolong tea. It differs from its counterparts in the moments after harvest: it undergoes little to no rolling or oxidation compared to the more rigorous process of creating darker teas from more mature leaves. As a result, white tea is the most fragile tea variety, and must be steeped for less time in slightly cooler water than other teas to bring out its true flavor. With minimal caffeine content and an almost gossamer appearance, this light tea is an excellent choice any time of day, and ideal for consumption in the later hours.

Opening with sweet vanilla, followed by a rush of lightly-spiced florals, and finishing with the distinct flavor of rose, this tea contains rose petals, vanilla pieces and fine white tea leaves. Inspired by the blooms of the New York Botanical Garden, Tea Forté Vanilla Rose was specially created for the Soleil collection in partnership with the historic horticultural institution.

      Wonderful smell and taste

      When I saw this flavor, I immediately ordered it. The flavor is subtle when brewed according to the directions, and the scent extremely calming. I will order this tea again.

      Love it

      This was a birthday gift for my husband who loves rose tea. He was blown away and says it’s one of the best teas he has ever had. He uses no sweetener and brews in the Kati cup. Highly recommend for a rose tea lover.

      Does not taste like vanilla or rose

      The first note is ginger and from then on it's licorice. I love a floral rose tea. I was so looking forward to this tea. Unfortunately it doesn't taste like rose or vanilla. So disappointed. I really looked for the rose, both in fragrance and in flavor. There is none. But I love the KATI STEEPING CUP AND INFUSER SOLEIL, it's beautiful.

      Our NEW Favorite Vanilla Blend!

      When the Soleil Collection came out, I was so excited to try the new blends. Both my fiancé and I feel in love with Vanilla Rose and had to buy this loose leaf tea canister immediately. We love how the vanilla and rose hints do not overpower each other. My fiancé usually makes a pot of Orchid Vanilla for himself, but this has become one of his new vanilla favorites!

      A lovely white tea!

      This tea came in my Soleil Presentation Box and was I ever delighted. I sat on the back deck with the hummingbirds, sipping and smelling this tea. What an exquisite experience. It reminded me that Spring is just around the corner. Subtle flavors combined with a sweet sense of joy.

      Subtle rose with vanilla hints

      Tea Forté’s Vanilla Rose white tea blend was a pleasant surprise to sample. The milder backdrop of the white tea provided a perfect canvas for its subtle rose flavor. I particularly appreciated that the vanilla was not at all overpowering. The overall effect was an expertly blended rose floral with hints of vanilla. I’m eager to drink more of this blend as I anticipate the arrival of spring!

      Soft and Satisfying

      I almost gave this 4 stars, just because it wasn't "my cup of tea" (am I the first to use that line?), but then I realized that wasn't fair because this is such a wonderful blend. It is just a little soft for my particular palette, but it is also a beautifully balanced and fragrant blend. The floral notes are definitely there, but it's such a light and easy drinking brew. Maybe that is part of the charm of this blend. This will be my go-to tea for when I am meditating in a grassy field full of flowers.
