About Rose Green Tea

Dark Tea Leaf with Rose Petals
Rose Green Tea
from Upton Tea
Rose green tea is green tea that has been scented with roses. Rose green tea can be produced similarly to how jasmine tea is traditionally produced, by placing rose petals together with the tea and repeating the process. Rose green tea can also be produced by adding the essential oil or extract of rose to green tea. The scenting process produces a mild oxidation of the leaves so the green tea takes on a character similar to pouchong tea.

Such scented teas may or may not contain actual rose petals. The petals are a decorative element, as the flowers can impart a strong aroma to the tea even if they have been removed.

In contrast to flowers such as jasmine and osmanthus which are often described as delicate and perfume-like, rose can have a surprisingly bold aroma. Stronger green teas like chun mee are sometimes used as the base for rose teas. Because the rose is so powerful, rose green tea resembles rose black tea in many ways.

SerendipiTea’s Rose Alongi is a blend of organic Chinese green tea and rose petals. The tea leaves on their own smell grassy. After it’s brewed, the tea smells like fresh roses with a definite (and pleasant) undercurrent of green tea.

This is a smooth and slightly sweet tea. It’s light-bodied and leaves a wond...

Rose Green Tea Organic from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Rose Green Tea – Region: China
Sep. 21st, 2009

Whereas people often think of roses as delicate and gentle, this is a very bold tea. The aroma is fruity, dark, and rich, and less floral than one would expect. The flavor is sharp and tangy, much more bitter than the fruity aroma might suggest. This is an outstanding tea, and is available at a very reasonable price...
