Osmanthus Flower (Gui Hua) Oolong is a very fragrant tea with fruity notes. This medium-oxidized oolong is smooth and full-bodied and the osmanthus flower buds add a light sweetness and floral aroma to the liquor.
According to Chinese medicine, Osmanthus flower tea is cooling and helps reduce inflammation while soothing the respiratory system.
We recommend brewing Osmanthus Flower Oolong in the gongfu style, using a small teapot or gaiwan, to appreciate the wonderful aromatics and the unique flavors that unfurl over several infusions. Add tea leaves to fill the teapot about one-third full and rinse the leaves briefly with hot water. Pour the rinse water out and then refill the pot with hot water and let the tea steep about 45 seconds to 1 minute. Increase the steeping time by 10-15 seconds for each subsequent brew. Most oolong teas can be re-steeped at least 6 times in this manner.
