Organic Assam, whose malty notes are complementary to vanilla, is the base for Vanilla Rose. Just enough delicate red roses are added to the blend to provide noticeable flavor, but not overwhelm the other tastes. Vanilla beans, each one produced by a single, hand-pollinated orchid, are hand-harvested and then cured for several months before being used to make extract. Vanilla Rose is great as a stand-alone tea or with milk and sugar.

8 oz Cup
- Scoop a heaping teaspoon of tea into infuser.

- Pour 8 oz. of water over tea leaves.
- Steep tea for 3-5 minutes (depending on taste preference).
- Remove infuser and enjoy tea.
Simply add to your infuser one level tablespoon of leaf per 8 oz. of water and place it in your pot, then add the appropriate amount of 190° F water and let it steep for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the infuser and enjoy.
Brewing Iced Tea
Our opinion is that a cooled concentrate works best, as regular-strength brew tends to become watery as the ice melts. So, use the above leaf quantities, but half the water, allow it to cool, then pour it over ice and enjoy. The brew will dilute down to proper strength as the ice melts.
