10.00 €

As suggested by its name, our Osmanthus Oolong tea is a blend of Oolong Jinxuan with osmanthus flower petals. Also called tea olive, osmanthus flower grows widely across Asia, from Himalaya foothills to southern Indochina.

 Osmanthus Oolong tea connoisseurs will recognize its typical flavor, between jasmine, honeysuckle & orange blossom, resulting in a light tea, with floral notes, especially for the first brew. Then, they give way to the characteristic flavor of Oolong tea (or Wu Long).

Overall, it has to be noted that the leaves used in this tea are the non-rolled Oolong milky ones.

In southern China, beyond a romantic meaning of this flower & its wide use with tea, osmanthus fragrance is light & fresh, inviting to mental concentration & meditation.

Belonging to the Oleaceae family, osmanthus is also known for its suave fruity notes reminding apricot or jasmine.

In addition, in Traditional Chinese Medicine, osmanthus appears to sooth cough, to ease throat irritations & respiratory congestion happening during cold season.
