Being Surprised by the Earliest Plucked Rose

We have just released Rose Damascena. This time it happens to be very special quality due to one specific reason.

We purchased the rose plucked in May

Our Rose Damascena is produced in Taklamakan Desert of Xinjiang, China. In the past five years I have been purchasing these flowers consistently. Previously I was buying the rose buds plucked in June to July. This year, our inventory of rose was gone low much earlier than our expected. In April, our inventory was almost zero. So I contacted the manufacturer and kept asking them to inform us as soon as the rose is ready. As a result, in May we were informed that rose was ready. We obtained the sample by the express and after verifying the quality, we immediately decided to purchase.

Best quality comes from the earliest plucked rose buds

I used to believe that if we choose the flower in the peak season the quality of rose was the best. The peak season of rose is June to July. So in the past, I have been always buying it during this timing. Nevertheless, the earliest-plucked rose was the best in quality. It is just like tea. When the rose blossom season just started, the earliest-plucked rose is only available in a very limited quantity. Due to very high demand, normally it is sold out in less than a week time. We have never come across with this quality before as we always search for the rose in June or July.

Long lasting aftertaste and clear drinking sensation

By chance we managed to procure the earliest-plucked rose this year thanks to the inventory was running out faster. Once we drink it, we could understand why the earliest-plucked rose is popular. The taste of the earliest-plucked rose is three dimensional. It gives very deep and long lasting aftertaste. In addition to the aftertaste, it gives very clear drinking sensation. Please taste and feel the difference. Rose tea compliments very well with other teas. For example, you can add 2-3 rose buds in other tea. In particular, it has a good affinity with white tea, raw pu-erh tea, black tea, oolong tea and green tea.
