This sounds nice. I write a blog about tea and experiment with blends, although it's not my main interest, and a few things seem odd in the recipe. It calls for tea bag tea, not loose tea (which is better--a long story), and also rose petals, which would potentially be harder to come by than loose tea. A two minute steep of one tea bag wouldn't change the flavor of the rest that had been simmered. Four might be more standard, but an optimum is hard to describe, complicated. Using a mild black tea would intuitively make more sense, although that part could just be my preference.

What would you suggest as an alternative? I'd like to make some mulled tea but I'm wary of wasting ingredients on a recipe that isn't reviewed.
