During manufacturing this fine Yunnan black tea is layered 5 times with rose petals giving it a delicate and ethereal rose character. It yields a light infusion with a touch of coppery color. Scented teas have been around for a long time and are produced according to ancestral recipes. Before the advent of essential oil extracts one of the easiest scents to duplicate was 'Rose'. The plantations would literally cut the rose blossoms from the plants bordering fields and pathways and sprinkle these into the tea. The result was a delicate butfinely flavored tea. Today the practice remains virtually the same but essential oils are used to speed up the scenting process and freshly cut flowers are added to the tea for visual effects. The result is a delightfully attractive leaf accented with rose petals combined with the refreshing cleansing flavour of roses.
