Scented and flavored teas as we have come to know them first made their appearance in the late Song Dynasty around the 12th Century. They remain some of the most popular teas to this day. We have assembled a collection of some outstanding scented teas in a reusable tin. Included are Earl Grey, Jasmine Pearls, and Lapsang Souchong.
|Each reusable tin contains 1 oz of each tea, enough to make 4-5 pots.
Jasmine pearls are a blend of premium green tea and Jasmine flowers that are picked in the morning when they are freshest. When the buds are about to burst open they are mixed with high-quality green tea. After the tea is scented, the flowers are removed and the tea is re-fired to remove the moisture.
|Our Lapsang Souchong comes from Tong Mu Guan of Fujian, the original birthplace of Lapsang Souchong. This fragrant black tea produces a deep amber infusion with spicy notes of cinnamon and bay complementing the piney smoke flavor.
Earl Grey is a blend of black tea leaves scented with natural Bergamot essential oils. The result is a delightful cup with pronounced floral and fruity notes. Enjoy alone or in a delicious London Fog.
