From Kally Tea

A delicate blend of Ceylon and Darjeeling teas paired with organic Osmanthus to create an aromatic and sweet cup that is both flowery and uplifting. The Osmanthus flowers are from an evergreen type shrub that is often used to scent teas. The flowers are relatively small in size, and impart an apricot or subtle peach flavor. The Osmanthus shrub grows mainly in southern China and Taiwan. The blossoms are also known to help aid digestion.

Ingredients: Black Tea, Organic Black Tea, and Organic Osmanthus Petals.

OK so I seriously intended to write a proper review this time but my cuppa today was beyond amazing and somehow ended up guzzled down before I even had a chance to log in here.
Thus, I’ll have to wait til next time. Needless to say, I really do love my Ceylon Osmanthus.

Cavocorax

Haha. That sounds like a good sign.

Indigobloom

Indeed it is! I’m a very happy tea lover today :D

Kittenna

Ok… I’m curious enough to want to wrangle a sample if you’re willing to share?

Indigobloom

for suresies!! :)

Bear With Me

mmm, ceylon!

Indigobloom

ShayneBear, agreed! I <3 my ceylon :P

Kasumi no Chajin

I’m going to have to try this!

Bear With Me

What exactly IS osmanthus? I’ve heard of osmanthus oolong, and now osmanthus ceylon, but I can’t figure out what the heck it is or what it’s supposed to taste like?!

Kasumi no Chajin

I know osmanthus is a floral, beyond that, unsure.

Indigobloom

It’s a soft floral. People say it tastes like peach or nectar but it reminds me of Egyptian chamomile in a way as well, well, the honey like part does anyhow!

Indigobloom

Kasumi, I think you would like it! really enjoyable and I’ll bet it goes down easy when iced to

Bear With Me

ooh! I may need to go out on an osmanthus hunt tomorrow!

Indigobloom

Let me know how it goes! :)

Finishing up this tea – the rest of it is going in to the swap box. I’m done with drinking teas that i don’t love! Not that this is a bad tea, but there are so many others that i’d rather spend my time drinking :) Plus i happen to know a few other people in the area that enjoyed this more than i did :)

Drinking a pot of this, while doing the prep work for dinner, although it’s another ‘low & slow’ type meal, & because I was busy doing other things, it won’t be ready until probably 9pm, lol.

Last night’s dinner was also way behind schedule, so the boys ate egg salad. I went to Tony’s to watch the first World Series game (if you’re from Boston, go ahead & gloat), & Tony fed me dinner. When the dinner at home was finally ready, I had the boys let it cool & then stick it in fridge. For breakfast today we reheated the slow-oven BBQ pork steaks, & had crispy potatoes (not good for me, but so damn good),& a pile of chard from my garden. I know that’s not what Normies eat for Brekkie, but it was amazing!

This tea is ok. I got it from my tea sister Sil awhile back. While it’s hot is a little bright & nicely lightly floral, but as it cooled down, the floral turned to an almost soapy perfume taste. :p

1 tablespoon for 375 ml

Apricot-fruity taste on the sip. Very slight astringency from the black tea. Black tea notes are very quiet. Slight buttery quality.

Thank you to Indigobloom and Sil for sharing this with me!

Thanks to Sil for sharing this one! Only a short tasting notelet, as I probably oversteeped this one (no brewing instructions on the website and I figured a Ceylon should be okay for 4 minutes, anyway). The smell was amazing, and I now know that I must have an osmanthus tea somewhere in my cupboard, though this may not be the osmanthus for me. The taste was much weaker, and as the tea base was rather bitter, it was hard to get anything else. I’ll try again shorter and maybe cooler.

Instructions say boiling for 3 mins…my apologies I thought it was here on steepster.

Hallieod

Oh, no need to apologise – I should have read the tasting notes when I didn’t find the info elsewhere.

Part of the Travelling Tea Box round 1. I had this tea on March 26/2014.

Dry leaf: Black tea leaves with yellow flower petals. The leaves have a sweet-ish scent to them.

Steeped: The water is a nice light amber that has no distinct scent. The tea has a light body and has a sweet and soothing taste.
