About This Blend

Osmanthus (gwai fah or Osmanthus fragrans) is native to many regions in Asia 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 imperial method, whereby the tealeaves absorb the fragrance of the osmanthus flowers. It is highly coveted and prized for its champagne aroma and deep, rich flavour. Osmanthus flower oolong tea has been highly revered in China for centuries. To tea lovers and aficionados, these sophisticated teas represent the pinnacle of much that is exotic and captivating about Chinese tea.

For Osmanthus Flower

Oolong teas should be steeped for 2-3 minutes at a temperature of 200°F or 93°C.

Unlike other teas, oolong tea can be re-steeped to make multiple cups. With each re-steep, different flavour characteristics emerge that alter the teas natural palate, creating a new tasting experience for you to enjoy. Oolong teas are exquisite to experience in a yixing tea pot.

Oolong tea does contain caffeine. To illustrate, one would need to drink approximately 4 cups of oolong tea to equal the same amount of caffeine as 1 cup of drip coffee.

Love this tea!

I got one tea of each type (green, black, herbal and oolong), and I'm really impressed with he quality. Nothing is bitter and everything taste really nice. Definitely going to buy again!

Strong sweet flavor

This is my second oolong tea and I'm surprised at how different it is from the first (Imperial Tung Ting). The pronounced sweet flavor pairs greatly with stronger meals and draining activities. Also, the aroma it releases can help create a calm environment.
