Scented teas have been around for a long time and are produced according to ancestral recipes. Before the advent of essential oil extracts one of the easiest scents to duplicate was Rose. The plantations would literally cut the rose blossoms from the plants bordering fields and pathways and sprinkle these into the tea. The result was a delicate but finely flavoured tea. Today the practice remains virtually the same. The result is a delightfully attractive leaf accented with rose petals combined with the refreshing cleansing flavour of roses. The next time a guest drops by; why not offer a truly special cup of hospitality accented with the scent and petals of roses.
Hot Tea Brewing Method
Place 1 teaspoon of tea per cup (and add 1 teaspoon for the pot) into your teapot. Pour boiling water into the pot and let it steep for about 3 - 7 minutes. Pour into your cup and enjoy.
Add milk and sugar to taste. Acceptable to drink 'straight up.'
Alternatively, put the tea in a tea infuser and brew right in your cup.
Iced Tea Brewing Method
Make as for hot, but add extra tea - when the tea has cooled a little, pour over ice. It is important to make it a little stronger as the ice will water it down.
Alternatively, you can place the tea in a jug and add cold water. Leave to infuse for a few hours (or overnight in the fridge) strain and enjoy. Cold brewing will give a smoother taste.
