Scented Tea

Scented tea was invented in China about a thousand years ago. Scented tea is different than flavored or blended teas. Instead of spraying tea leaves with artificial scents and flavors, it takes weeks to naturally scent these teas with fresh flowers. The most popular version is green tea scented with fresh jasmine flowers. We carry four different jasmine teas, as well as one very rare tea scented with fresh orchid flowers.

The first cup kisses away my thirst,
and my loneliness is quelled by the second.
The third gives insight worthy of ancient scrolls,
and the fourth exiles my troubles.
My body becomes lighter with the fifth,
and the sixth sends word from immortals.
But the seventh —oh the seventh cup— if I drink you,
a wind will hurry my wings toward the sacred island.
