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, similar to when tealeaves absorb the fragrance of the jasmine. It is highly coveted and prized for its champagne aroma and deep, rich flavor.
