Oolong tea and osmanthus flavor
Osmanthus (gwai fah or Osmanthus fragrans) is native to many regions in Asia and produces beautiful, yellow, exotically fragrant flowers. One of the most expensive ingredients in perfumes and teas, osmanthus is placed next to oolong leaves and scenting is conducted using the imperial method, similar to when tealeaves absorb the fragrance of the jasmine. It is highly coveted and prized for its champagne aroma and deep, rich flavor. Oolong has been highly revered in China for centuries. To tea lovers and aficionados, these sophisticated teas represent the pinnacle of much that is exotic and captivating about Chinese tea.
