Hi my name is Sam I've been growing roses for as long as I can remember and prefer Tea Roses.

Hello Sam
Tea roses are my favourites, too. Cimbing 'Devoniensis', 'Duchesse de Brabant' and 'General Gallieni' are my top three out of the fifteen tea varieties I have in the garden so far. I know others have many, many more. Looking forward to hearing more about what you've got.

I look longingly at 'Devoniensis' and grow the other two but this magnificent obsession must stop!
Others I grow are:
Mrs Dudley Cross,
possibly Hugo Roller and/or Penelope Tea (from several sources),
Mme Berkley
Maman Cochet (pink, white, red)
Oxley Elizabeth Tea (founding)
Mme Berard
Duchesses d┴uerstadt
Anna Olivier
Archduke Joseph
Peace 1902
Pax 1918 (which grows like a tea)
Mrs Reynolds Hole (not good here)
Mrs Hatchell-Brown's tea
Blackbutt Tea (ROR)
Comtesse Riza du Parc (little plant)
Rozette de Lizy
Bishop Lodge "Speragina"

Difficult to know what's Tea and what isn't - Billy says many are 'cuspy'. But 'Mrs Reynolds Hole' comes under "Margaret's Rule of Thumb" (smells too good to be Tea). I think the Tealadies count "Oxley Elizabeth", "BL Speragina" and the "Hatchell-Brown rose" as HTs. Patricia has suggested 'Golden Spray' (Dickson 1917) for the H-B rose (which came to Mrs H-B many years ago labelled Mermaid, which it clearly isn't).
There's a lot to be said for teas, if you've got room for them.
