Floral scented tea, like most teas, can vary wildly in quality and often gets a bad name in the purist tea world but, an expertly scented tea can be a joy. The tea has to be scented naturally and complement high quality tea leaves.
In this flight box we present three floral scented teas to taste side-by-side. We have chosen three different types of tea and three different flowers to showcase the variation in scented tea making. By experiencing a flight of teas in a horizontal tasting we can directly compare the teas and learn more about them in the process.
This scented Tea Flight box contains three top quality teas which have been selected for comparative tastings. The box contains a letter written by myself to explain the key differences between the teas and how these affect the sensory experience.
The box contains tasting cards to fill out for your reference. Once you have completed a comparative tasting there will be plenty of tea remaining for individual tea sessions.
This box contains:
Aromatic Oolong scented with Osmanthus flowers. Raw almond and butter start, sweet osmanthus middle and fresh green grass finish.
A luxurious combination of Fujian small leaf black tea and rosebuds. Malt loaf, rose and dark baked chocolate brownies.
