Scented or Flavored Green Teas are created when additional flavorings are mixed with the leaf as a final stage before the tea is packed. For Premium Jasmine tea, whole, fresh jasmine blossoms are added to the green tea during the drying process, new blossoms are added every night, and the old ones are removed.
This process is repeated for up to 10 nights. For other grades of Jasmine tea, the blossoms are added when the tea is packed. For other floral-scented or flavored teas, flower blossoms or petals may be added to the tea either during drying, or just prior to packing. Fruit and spice flavored teas are generally made by combining a fruit's or spice's essential oils, or actual pieces of the fruit or spice, with tea from China, India or Ceylon (Sri Lanka).
