This post is late in coming and I deeply apologise for that however I feel it was worth the wait as it allowed me more time to try this product out longer and give a better review on it.
As well as offering you high quality teas, Yandra has now introduced an all new 100% all nature and vegan friendly ‘Rose Syrup’! and I was lucky enough to be gifted an amazon voucher from @YandraTea in return I would use that voucher to purchase their tea syrup, test it out and give an honest review on it. When I checked out on amazon I was greeted to a beautiful 400ml bottle wrapped in purple, called, ‘Rose Syrup Natural ‘ on amazon that instantly made me want to try it out! (I’m a sucker for the colour purple).
Tea syrup is definitely a new thing for me, I love my tea (though I much prefer my traditional Tetley tea ) I don’t mind a mix up now and again, and having syrup in my tea was definitely a mix up for me!

On our Farm located on the river banks of the Danube in the South East of Romania, we harvest and dry the most exquisite, perfect rose buds to make our delicate, aromatic rose bud tea and produce 100% Natural Rose Syrup to my grandma’s secret recipe from our fresh roses. Lovingly made using traditional secret family recipes, we were inspired to bring our organic products to market.
Driven by these principles, our Tea Sommeliers are constantly sourcing and tasting hundreds of new tea harvests, herbs and fruits. Then we carefully select to create the most special flavours for you to enjoy whether it will be one of our signature limited edition teas or exclusive seasonal blends.

In a unique collaboration with several young artists, Yandra Tea Company supports ‘Art meets Tea’ – an inspirational and expressive collection of artisan packaging based on contemporary art celebration.
On the back of the box it explain that you can add this syrup into your tea or into sparkling water, so I thought I would give both a try. I thought I would try Rose Simple Syrup with plain Soda Water, Peach Flavoured Sparkling Water and Early Grey Tea. I also used the help of my younger sister (who is a bigger tea fan than I am) to try this syrup out with me and here is what we had to say:
I won’t lie I was slightly apprehensive when trying this syrup out, the smell for me wasn’t pleasant and it did put me off it slightly. Because of the smell I decided to use it in my sister’s Earl Grey tea which has a malty, lemony taste to it that I thought would compliment the Rose Simple syrup
And I was right! When adding a tea spoon or two of ‘Rose Simple’ syrup into my my Early Grey flavoured tea, something magical happened in my mouth and made my tea taste a little sweeter. I didn’t even need to add sugar with my tea after adding Yandra Tea syrup in!
The syrup it’s self smells like fresh roses accompined by rich, deep and darken colour. I also got to try it on some Ice cream and a few other deserts and it went perfectly! It’s that little extra thing you are missing in your deserts. Despite what you may think upon looking at this tantalising and beautiful syrup colour,but this is all 100% natural meaning that no artificial colouring was added nor was it needed! (more pictures coming soon).
Although their recipe is a family secret, they do offer up a small list of ingredient that is does contain such as:
Damask Rose petals
and a Dash of lemon
