The earliest-plucked rose is 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.
It gives an intense sweet floral note with a honey-like undertone that last for several brewing. Many people who tried this tea for the first time thought that it's a "perfumed" tea, yet this is 100% natural rose buds without any artificial flavoring. All you get in the cup is purely natural flavor of the genuine rose buds.
