I don’t generally like flavored teas, but I’ll make a small exception for this one. The base tea is undistinguished, but the osmanthus would overwhelm anything it was paired with anyhow. It makes me think of the huge osmanthus in Portland’s Classical Chinese Garden, which is so fragrant when it blooms that it scents the whole neighborhood.
China Guangxi Gui-Hua Osmanthus Tea
This style of Osmanthus tea is characterized by a superior Pouchong base tea. Slightly sweet and delightfully floral in aroma, but not cloyingly so.
