Flower Power: Blending Floral Teas
4/21/2016  |  Tea Types
Floral tea When thinking about adding flowers to teas made of Camellia sinensis leaves and herbal teas, several things come to mind. The aroma of a nice tea is pretty subtle, which is why some people like to flavor teas. Flowers as a group tend to communicate aroma and taste, but rarely in equal measure. Consider the rose, which contributes about 90% aroma and 10% taste. If you'€™re thinking of adding rose to a green tea, brew the green tea leaves and smell rose petals in your hand for a preview of what that blend will taste like. People don'€™t really like to drink just rose petals steeped — €”it tastes like rosewater and your palate wants more because there'€™s nothing to back up the aroma. Mandarin Rose brings together black tea with rose for a tea that has a bit of a feminine edge. It would make a wonderful afternoon tea party tea or as an iced tea for enjoying outdoors on a warm day.

When steeped in a glass teapot, flowering teas look like something you would see in the movie Avatar on the planet of Pandora.
