I love a good cup of tea and altough I'm an earl grey drinker, sometimes I like to sit down with a hot cup of rose tea. Rose tea is essentially tiny little dried red French rose buds which you put into a tea pot or cup (1 or 2 per cup, depending on your preference of strength) and then fill with hot water.
I only drink tea out of fine bone china, otherwise it's not at all a good experience. It's good to note that Bombshells don't drink out of clumbsy, heavy cups with thick edges. If you're thinking of purchasing your own tea set, have a look at Wedgwood or Royal Doulton and others of similar quality. As for rose tea, have a look for it at souks, markets or ask for it in stores like Selfridges in Oxford Street, London.
