Osmanthus tea is produced in a similar fashion to jasmine tea, layering blooms between the fresh
tea leaves, allowing the delicate scent to permeate the tea. Then the blooms are blended into the tea to enhance the visual appeal as well as boost the flavor.
Osmanthus blooms are very delicate and the aroma from the blossoms is equally delicate resulting in mild peach flavor notes on the tea. Osmanthus flowers are said to improve digestion and aid a longer and healthier life and the health benefits of green tea are well known making for a very popular tea in China.
