Tasting Notes: Delicate, soft amber liquor with a light florality and refreshing dash of mint.
Named for one of our favorite spots in town, Yaddo Rose Garden tea is a blend of organic white tea with organic rose petals, organic mint and organic lavender. A fresh and floral delight, this scented white tea reminds us of summer picnics and simple pleasures.
Iced or hot, Yaddo Rose Garden is comforting, yet refreshing to the palette - just like its namesake. A perfect oasis amidst the bustle of Saratoga Summers, Yaddo Rose Garden (the tea or the garden!) is a beautiful and tranquil refuge.
A light and floral honey like Acacia is a lovely complement to this beautiful tea!
This tea is also available as a mini tea tin.
All Organic Ingredients: Organic White Tea, Organic Rose Petals, Organic Mint, and Organic Lavender.
Scented teas should be brewed according to the base tea leaves. White and green scented teas may be brewed at 185 degrees for 3 minutes. Black scented teas may be brewed at 205 degrees for 3-5 minutes. We recommend to brew chai teas at 205 degrees for 5-7 minutes to yield a strong cup that will hold nicely with honey and milk.
What is Scented Tea?
Blended or scented tea, as opposed to herbal tea, is based upon the leaf of the tea plant, camellia sinensis. Other ingredients such as flowers, dried fruits, and essential oils are then added to achieve the desired flavor.
Health Benefits of Scented Tea
Congratulations, if you are drinking tea, you have already chosen an incredible, healthful beverage. Tea is considered in many cultures to have medicinal properties. All tea comes from the same plant family, camellia sinensis and therefore all types and styles contain the same components that contribute to significant health benefits. Influence of the varietal, growing conditions, production techniques and your own brewing practices play a role in the antioxidant and caffeine levels in your cup. Blended and scented teas are no exception. So enjoy a cup of tea, any tea, and know that you are drinking health.
