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 enjoyed the subtlety and intermixing of flavors. A wonderful brew for hot, humid days, especially when served cool.

Flavors are definitely better when brewed for two minutes or less at 175 to 185 degrees F. It can even be cold brewed for a more subtle, yet more floral flavor.
