Since the thread title is just 'Tea Roses', I'll post about a few of the original Old Tea Roses brought over from China.

Such as Rosa x 'Hume's Blush' which arrived in England in 1810.

...and Rosa x 'Park's Yellow' in 1824.

Are these really still the same cultivars more or less 200 years later? Who knows...

The first official Hybrid Tea came later: Rosa x 'La France' found in a cultivation in 1867.
