Date palm flowers were the usual suspect...

I thought the sweet jasmine smell in the air all over the tea orchard was from the tea plants, but, I think they are largely from the data palm flowers.  Sheltered by these palm trees with such sweet smell, no wonder these teas grown here have rich layer of sweet fragrance.  So any one can confirm this?  Data palm flowers releases sweet jasmine like smell?
