Having had this I am starting to think that tea with flowers or petals is not my thing. It adds a weak, slightly sweet flavour that is hard to place. It’s very drinkable but unless I enjoy future cups I probably won’t buy it again
Osmanthus is one of the half-dozen flavoured teas which made their first appearance during the Ming dynasty, 500 years ago. The Ming enthusiasm for flowers is legendary, so it is unsurprising that the technique they developed for imbuing green tea with the flavours and aromas of their favourite blooms is still in use today.
Osmanthus is the sweetest of their flower teas, with an aroma that reminds some drinkers of apricots and a fruity, refreshing taste.
