kanoka rose cocktail
Our Kanoka Rose Cocktail was a hit at the OneTea x The Green Table Supper Party! The playful take on classic Persian Rose Tea was paired with Persian Spiced Lamb Shank or a Vegetarian Sabzi. The deep profile of the Kanoka Assam tea blossomed with the floral aroma of the rose water and petals. Give it a try at home and let us know how you like it!
