Taprobane Tea Company has launched a rose petal-based tea into the Australian market.

Ceylon black tea, sourced from Sri Lanka, is combined with actual rose petals, resulting in an aromatic product.

Taprobane also has a green tea with the flavour of pomegranate, which balances out the bitterness of the green tea, according to the company.

Taprobane teas are ethically sourced and manufactured, with the company supporting wildlife conservation in Sri Lanka.

Tea leaves are grown and hand-picked in the high elevation tea gardens of Sri Lanka, and processed on site within a couple of hours of being picked.

Every part of the product, including packaging, is 100 per cent recyclable.

RRP is $7.00 per 20-bag pack.
