Rose Violet Calendula Oolong from Naivetea

Rose Violet Calendula Oolong from NaiveteaAs beautiful as all of Naivetea‘s Oolongs, this romantic and feminine cup of tea includes a floral blend of roses, violets and calendula (marigold) petals.   Soft and subtle, this tea brews up a pale yellow color and has a soft whispery floral fragrance.

The extremely high quality leaves unfurl into large leaves in the hot water – these leaves expand a LOT so use less dry tea than you normally would when brewing.  You can taste the quality of the green Oolong Tea leaves, as the soft floral notes are not at all overwhelming, simply gentle and complementary.

Naivetea describes this tea as:

High altitude oolong infused with rose, violet, and calendula with a sprinkle of jasmine green. Intense floral aroma with hints of rose, violet, and calendula. Light and smooth body with strong bouquet flavor and jasmine green undertone. Fragrant finish and long sweet after taste.

This tea is so soft and romantic that I would call it a “poet’s cup” of tea.  And I don’t just mean “Roses are red, violets are blue…”  I actually found a wonderful YouTube video featuring an animated poem called “The Violet and the Rose” which is told as a spoof of Romeo and Juliet, but it makes me think of this beautiful tea and how the roses mingle together with the violets.

I bought the lime in the coconut tea after reading your review and love it! I went to this website to try and get this but don’t see any buying links for this one…is this one that you can only buy retail in stores?

Nope! With Naivetea – at least right now – they accept orders via email (info@naivetea.com), I believe if you email them they will explain more about how to order their teas – when I asked about payment methods, they said only via fax or email. Hope this helps!
