Poisoned Roses

(5 customer reviews)


“At some point, we’re all someone’s hero and another’s villain. It’s all a matter of perspective.” – Capturing the Devil by Kerri Maniscalco

Blended using ingredients mentioned in the various teas served in Capturing the Devil, Poisoned Roses is a delightfully floral earl grey (sans poison, despite the name). Don’t let its beauty fool you, though. Like Audrey Rose, this blend is strong and up for the task!

Tastes like: casting spells at dawn or dusk, as the sun is closest to the earth and darkness creeps at the edges of vision – bright and floral while also softΒ  Β  and soothing.

Story pairings:

Ingredients: Earl Grey (Organic black tea, natural bergamot flavoring), hibiscus, rose petals, lavender

1 oz bag contains ~18-22 servings, per 1 teaspoon serving size.

    Poisoned Roses has a beautiful flavor profile, with the floral undertones complimenting the earl grey tea perfectly. The floral additions lightened up the earl grey, and it was a blend like I’ve never tasted before. I added a bit of sugar to it myself, since I like my teas sweetened, and I couldn’t stop with one cup!

    Poisoned Roses is a light floral black tea that is very mellow. I love the way it looks before brewing with the colorful flower petals. It has a slight citrus and flower scent and is so yummy with milk.

    This is such a deliciously fragrant earl grey, with sweet floral notes. It slipped down very nicely, followed by two more helpings.? Too good for just one cup.

    Walking in a dark meadow, the leaves appear almost black with nothing but the pale moon providing you light. The red roses scattered along the darkened world, guiding you forward. You lean forward and take a deep breath. Something seems off in their scent, it’s floral just as you remember the roses from your mother’s kitchen table, but there is another one you can’t place. But, ah, it must just be this strange place.

    You pluck the rose petals and take them home to steep into your traditional black tea. The aroma taking over the home. The warmth of your cuppa spreading from your hands, warming your body and soul. The black tea you have come to love, dancing in your mouth; but when you swallow, those floral tones linger, teasing your tongue and making you wish for more.

    I’d rate this tea 10/5 stars if I could. A naturally sweet tea that leaves your mouth watering for the next sip. Every sip seemed to bring out a different floral note of either rose or lavender yet the black Earl Grey tea is the familiar, comforting favorite you know, and the taste was so utterly soothing. I added a little milk and lavender syrup to make this into a latte that was to die for!
