Hybrid Tea.  
Blush, ages to white .  Tea fragrance.  Large, double (17-25 petals) bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  
USDA zone 6b through 9b (default).  Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.
