It took a little while for this to grow on me. I made it exactly as written, even using the optional rose water (I found this recipe mainly because I had some I needed to use up). My big addition, though, is that this needs time to develop. Maybe there should even be a step 2, to let it sit for 12 hours, or a day, or even more. I had my first glass almost immediately after making a batch, and thought it weak, with a prominent rose flavor. Plus the fact that it wasn't chilled didn't help much. That pitcherful lasted for 4 days, I think, and the last couple of glasses tasted great, with much more orange flavor. (I'm not enough of a tea connoisseur to care much about the Earl Grey flavors.) A bonus is that after the liquid is all gone, the orange slices make nice dessert-time snacks.
I have another batch of this in the fridge as I write....
