What is China Rose Congou Tea?
Rose Congou is a classically scented Tea that the Chinese know as "Meigui Hongcha". Producers make it by layering rose petals over China Black Tea during its processing. This creates a sweet and flowery 'bouquet' of flavour.
Black Tea vs Green Tea
Black Tea, like Green Tea (and like any 'real' Tea!), can improve one's everyday way of life in small yet significant ways. Despite Green Tea having had the limelight for years, it doesn't mean that Black Tea doesn't deserve some recognition, too!
Black Teas such as Rose Congou Tea contain two particularly beneficial antioxidants called theaflavin and thearubigin. These antioxidants can slow down the process of natural, though harmful, oxidation in the body by combating free radicals.
Free radicals are unpaired (and unsafe!) electrons that, when left unchecked, can wreak havoc on the body. This, in turn, increases the risks of developing numerous chronic conditions, including cardiovascular disease and type-2 diabetes. The antioxidants in this Tea, on the other hand, can, in fact, reduce the risks of these conditions! What more could you want from your cuppa?

Benefits of this Tea
We now know about the antioxidants, but what benefits come from them? A 2015 meta-analysis found that drinking a cup of Tea a day (no matter the type) reduced the risks of developing cancer by 2%.
Those who drank the most Tea, on the other hand, had a 21% lower cancer risk than those who drank none. It's important to note, however, that The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company do not currently endorse the consumption of Tea for this purpose. We nevertheless support ongoing research.
