Move over jasmine and rose, I’ve got a new favorite floral tea and it’s osmanthus! After being somewhat underwhelmed earlier by an osmanthus scented flowering green tea, this tea won me over with its creamy, sweet floral taste and aroma. The tea’s natural floral notes are perfectly balanced with the osmanthus flavoring. Unlike jasmine scented teas which often dominates, the osmanthus flavor is subtle and complements the base tea beautifully.
Only knock on this tea is most of the flowery notes are gone after the first infusion. But the green oolong really comes out on the second steeping with just a lingering floral aftertaste.
Flavors: Flowers, Honeysuckle, Osmanthus
