Kwai Flower Oolong from Het Gouden Randje

Style: Osmanthus Tea – Region: ?????

51 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Aug. 11th, 2017

This is a new tea that Het Gouden Randje has just added to its inventory. I drank a cup of it in the tea shop, and I did my best to taste it properly. It's always difficult, though; I prefer to drink teas at home with more controlled conditions and multiple chances to get to know them properly.
I feel like this time e...

China Sweet Osmanthus from Het Gouden Randje

Style: Osmanthus Tea – Region: Guangxi, China

75 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 8th, 2017

I asked the owner of Het Gouden Randje to recommend me a Chinese green tea, and she served me this. I don't usually go for flavoured teas, but this one was so good that I bought 50 grams of it. I can't actually remember the price (of course it doesn't help that I bought three other kinds of tea at the same time, as wel...

Osmanthus Green Oolong from Music City Tea

Style: Osmanthus Tea – Region: ?????

87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 11th, 2017

This is a very nice pure tea. The osmanthus flowers are a nice complement, but it's the oolong tea that shines. Heads up: the tea expands a *lot* in water, so use a smaller scoop than normal --- maybe a half size? Also, it resteeps very well.

Taiwan Osmanthus Oolong from TeaVivre

Style: Osmanthus Tea – Region: Blend

100 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jun. 4th, 2014

The aroma is extremely floral and sweet. If you have never sniffed an osmanthus flower, the aroma is like a mix of jasmine, honeysuckle, and orange blossoms, it is heady and heavenly, tiny flowers with a very strong aroma. Blend this flower's aroma with a sweet, almost milky, aroma of the oolong. There are also faint n...

Amber Dragon from Octavia Tea

Style: Osmanthus Tea – Region: Blend

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 30th, 2014

I love osmanthus-scented oolong; this one is completely different from the other example, from Upton Tea, which I tried. Whereas Upton's tea (ZM44) is a greener oolong where the base tea's natural floral scent blends seamlessly into the osmanthus flowers, this tea is a darker oolong with a less floral character, and i...

Guangxi Osmanthus from Tea Horse

Style: Osmanthus Tea – Region: Guangxi, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 11th, 2013

I am a big fan of osmanthus flavor and aroma. Traditionally this flower is brewed both by itself and with various teas in the summer months because of its cooling qualities.

This blend has only a small proportion of osmanthus to green tea, more for aroma, and to let the green tea to shine through. I very much enjoy...

Guangxi Osmanthus from Tea Horse

Style: Osmanthus Tea – Region: Guangxi, China

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 2nd, 2013

I thought this tea was great! I'm a big fan of Jasmine, so I really liked the aroma of this tea. It wasn't as strong as most Jasmines I've had, but it certainly delivered subtle floral tones. The flavor didn't pack a huge punch, but I found it enjoyable! This was definitely a high-quality tea.

Guangxi Osmanthus from Tea Horse

Style: Osmanthus Tea – Region: Guangxi, China

63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 8th, 2013

Dry leaf has a strange aroma, a little perfumey. Upon brewing though, I like the aroma much more. I also find that it tastes even better once it has cooled to room temperature.

This is my first osmanthus-scented green tea; I've had osmanthus-scented oolong tea before, and it's among my favorite teas. I find that ...

ZM44: Osmanthus Oolong Se Chung from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Osmanthus Tea – Region: China

93 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Mar. 29th, 2010

I love this tea. Se Chung is absolutely my favorite style of oolong, and my favorite Se Chung is Upton's ZO10, so I was eagerly anticipating this one, and I was pleased to find a rich, complex tea that added a completely new element to the mix. I can't say whether I prefer this or the unscented tea more. They're ver...
