Osmanthus Oolong (Wild Tree blend Fall Harvest!)
Flavor Profile: We blend an organically grown, loose leaf roasted oolong from Fujian province with a unique Chinese herb called Osmanthus. It is the national flower of China and a most fragrant, Autumn blooming botanical.
This year's harvest was mid-October. These days most Osmanthus on the market is contaminated with pesticides, herbicides and even sulphur. It is also often high heat processed for fast drying, which depletes the fragrance and flavor. But we have an extra special direct source that tends wild trees, harvests the tiny blossoms by hand and dries them organically with no added fragrances or coloring. Just pure, wild golden blossoms. The contrast of the oolong's earthy, roasted body and the sweet, bright fragrance and flavor of Osmanthus harmonizes exquisitely to create an ancient tea blend for the cold, dark days of the year.
