Tasting notes: Osmanthus, star fruit, smooth
Origin: Yuchi, Nantou, Taiwan
Cultivar: 青心烏龍 Qingxin Oolong
Made by a women-led organic farm, this creamy oolong is infused with fresh osmanthus flowers to create its well-loved aroma.
Why we love it:
- It has a brightness to it, akin to the refreshing sensation of biting into a star fruit.
- Its floral aroma is balanced, without being overly perfumy, thanks to the heat-infusion process.
- It takes a lot of work to produce: once the tea has been harvested and processed, the 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 leaves continue on to be rolled and finished.
- It's organic. Most of the tea farms we source from are too small to afford an official organic certification, but they follow the sustainable practices of small-batch tea. This tea is made by Katie Yen's farm, which has achieved certification.
- It is good for you: osmanthus oil is often used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for its detoxing properties and is known to help improve the skin and strengthen digestion.
