Green Tea: Floral Blends

Floral Flavored Green Teas from China and Japan blend the delicate nuances of green tea with the enticing scents and flavors of various flowers. These teas offer a sensory experience that captures the beauty of nature, elevating traditional green tea into a captivating cup of floral delight.

Brewing Instructions:

For Floral Flavored Green Teas from China and Japan, use 1 teaspoon of tea per 8 oz of water. Heat water to 175-185°F (80-85°C) and steep for 2-3 minutes. Adjust steeping time, temperature, and amount of tea for desired strength.

Iced Tea Brewing:

There are two popular methods to brew iced tea: the traditional method and the cold brew method. Both methods have their merits, but cold brewing often results in a smoother and less bitter taste. The following recipes are for brewing a gallon of iced tea at a time, using about 1 oz (3 heaping tablespoons) of tea.

Traditional Method:

  1. Heat a half-gallon of water to 175-185°F (80-85°C) and pour it over 1 oz (3 heaping tablespoons) of tea leaves in a heat-resistant container.
  2. Steep for 3-4 minutes. Be careful not to allow the tea to become bitter. Sampling often as it's brewing will help you familiarize yourself with a new tea.
  3. Fill a separate container with a half-gallon of ice, and pour the hot tea over the ice, allowing it to melt and dilute the tea concentrate.
  4. Serve the diluted tea over ice in individual glasses.

Cold Brew Method:

  1. Add 1 oz (3 heaping tablespoons) of tea leaves to a gallon of cold water in a pitcher or container.
  2. Cover and refrigerate for 6-12 hours, depending on the desired strength.
  3. Strain the leaves and serve over ice in individual glasses.

Feel free to sweeten your iced tea with honey, sugar, or other sweeteners according to your taste preference. To ensure easy dissolving, make a syrup with hot water and honey or sugar before adding it to the cold tea. Adding sweeteners can enhance the floral flavor and complement the smoothness of the iced tea, making it even more enjoyable on a warm day.


Floral Flavored Green Teas have a rich history in China, reflecting the country's unique tea culture and appreciation of natural beauty. The tradition of scenting tea with flowers has been practiced for centuries, with jasmine-scented tea dating back to the Song Dynasty (960-1279). These teas continue to be cherished for their exquisite taste and aroma, offering a delightful fusion of tea and floral notes.

Possible Health Benefits:

Floral Flavored Green Teas not only provide the health benefits associated with green tea, such as antioxidants and potential support for heart health, but may also offer additional benefits from the flowers used in scenting. Some studies suggest that floral scents can promote relaxation and reduce stress. However, more research is needed to confirm these effects.
