Osthmanthus Oolong Tea
This tea uses the best golden osmanthus to blend with top grade oolong. This oolong tea has absorbed all the fragrances from the osmanthus flower, which produces a superb floral fragrance and smooth taste.
Osmanthus is native to many regions in China and produces beautiful, yellow, exotically fragrant flowers. One of the most expensive ingredients in perfumes and teas, osmanthus is placed next to oolong leaves and scenting is conducted using the traditional method.
Origin: Anxi, Fujian Province, China
Delicate, tiny golden trumpets of osmanthus blossoms are dried and blended with green, 30 per cent oxidised Tie Kuan Yin to give a wonderful, aromatic infusion that fills the mouth with sweet, silky, perfumed magic and heady floral perfume.
Brew 2.5g (0.09oz) in 200ml (7fl oz) water at 80°C (176°F) for 2 minutes. Strain and add more water for two or more further infusions
