About scented teas: Green tea has been enjoyed by many for centuries. Over time, blenders wanted to distinguish their precious spring harvest among their fellow farmers. Their decision to begin adding roses, gardenias, orchids, and jasmine blossoms to their carefully grown tea greatly impacted the tea drinking experience. Not only did it add to the beauty of the loose leaves but it greatly influenced the aroma of the brew. The secret to correctly crafting a scented green tea relied on the farmer picking the flowers at dawn while the buds are tightly closed. They chilled them into the evening hours and then as the flowers began to open and release their scents, the farmer blended them with the green tea leaves which thus absorbed their fresh scent.
