Scented tea

Traditionally, scented tea is made from different types of finished tea leaves that are scented slowly with different fresh flowers to absorb aroma and flavor. Also known as fragrant tea, scented tea mainly comprises green tea as the tea base and the dried and processed flowers of various plants.

Scenting is done by a tea producer, before tea leaves are fully finished. They are blended with fragrant fresh flowers or even fruits, usually multiple times, until they take over scent and flavor. Tea has a character of slowly absorbing any flavor and aroma around, meaning quality scented tea will take at least 2-3 weeks to fully absorb the scent.

Scenting teas are believed to have come from the Chinese tea culture during the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368). The Mongolian influence of bold aroma and spiced foods forced a change to the delicate subtle flavors of tea served at court to this point.
