Description

Osmanthus Oolong Tea is made from a blend of oolong tea scented with fresh sweet osmanthus flowers. The floral fragrance sets off the taste of the tea? The sweetness of the oolong made even richer by the perfume of the osmanthus flowers. This is a truly unique style of flavoured tea. One cup in the hand fills the entire room with fragrance and the aftertaste is rich and long lasting. The liquor of the brewed tea is an emerald green colour that remains through several infusions. The osmanthus is an evergreen shrub. Much of it is grown around the cities of Guilin and Hangzhou. It has an elegant fragrance suggesting secluded, far away places. People never tire of calling it the "flower whose perfume lingers in the air for nine miles around." 

Benefits:

Osmanthus flower is effective for beautifying the skin, regulating internal toxins, relieving cough, reducing phlegm and maintaining healthy moist lungs. In summertime many people find their skin gets very dry or that their voice becomes husky from excessive internal heat. The addition of a little osmanthus flower to green or oolong tea can help relieve these symptoms
