You can scented sugar for tea or for baking! There are at least 150 different varieties of scented pelargonium (commonly known as scented geraniums), including mint, rose, apple, apricot, nutmeg, lemon, orange, lime, ginger, cinnamon and coconut, to name a few. Species of Pelargonium are evergreen perennials indigenous to Southern Africa and are drought and heat tolerant, and can tolerate only minor frosts. For this scented sugar I use rose scented pelargoniums / geraniums leaves that I became from my friends in Crete (Greece).
