Osmanthus Oolong (Organic)|桂花烏龍 (有機) 

Tasting notes: Mellow, full-bodied, osmanthus

A light, bright and naturally sweet tea, Osmanthus Oolong (Organic) is heat-infused with fresh osmanthus blossoms to retain the flowers' fragrant essential oils. As a lightly oxidised oolong tea, it is excellent brewed hot or cold. Our Osmanthus Oolong is produced in small batches by an organic tea farm led by Katie Yen in Nantou, Taiwan.

This tea is a firm favourite in Hong Kong, and undergoes very complex processing to attain its signature fragrance. Once the oolong tea has been harvested and processed, the tea leaves are baked together with osmanthus flowers to absorb the blossoms’ essential oils naturally. 

The osmanthus blossoms are then separated out by hand, and the tea continues on with the finishing process, which includes rolling it into individual balls. The resulting tea is light, fresh with a refined long-lasting floral fragrance. 

Osmanthus blossoms are often used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for their detoxing properties and are known to help improve the skin and strengthen digestion.

We recommend avoiding boiling water with Osmanthus Oolong (Organic) as the nuanced flavours may be lost. You can rinse the tea first to speed up the unfurling process and get a stronger first infusion.

These are just guidelines. As we always say, it’s best to experiment with a range of temperatures and leaf-to-water ratios to understand the tea and your own taste preferences.
