Osmanthus Oolong combines high quality Jin Xuan variety loose leaf tea with fresh osmanthus flowers to produce a most spectacular tea.

Handmade on a small farm in Taiwan this is the only tea this family has made for the past 3 generations! Scented using only natural methods - fresh tea and osmantus flowers are layered together and allowed to infuse together in the cooling night air - this is an example of an aromatic tea that tastes as good as it smells.

 


  • Bright soft stone fruits. Juicy peaches and ripe apricots with delicate touches of natural creaminess.
  • All my tasting notes really say is peaches and cream. Most of the time I try to expand upon things however, in this instance to do so would just confuse things! I just love how amazing naturally scented teas can actually taste.

  • Longer & Less - for a typical European style of brewing we recommend: 

    1tsp (3g) of loose leaf tea per person into a pot of around 90º water. (Allow freshly boiled water to stand for 1 minute) Infuse for around 2 minutes. For subsequent infusions increase the time by 1 minute each round. 

    Can be infused 3-4 times this way. 

    Shorter & More - for a more traditional Asian (Gong Fu) style of brewing we recommend: 

    1tbsp (7g) of loose leaf tea with around 150ml of 90º water. (Allow freshly boiled water to stand for 1 minute) Infuse for around 30 seconds. For subsequent infusions increase the time by 10-15 seconds each round. 

    Can be infused 6-7 times this way.
