Here, Ms Ming has combined a fine oolong with osmanthus blossom. This elegant flowering plant has a sensual, heady fragrance from Asia. To make this exceptional tea, the flowers are mixed with the tea, then removed carefully to preserve the freshness of the notes.
The osmanthus blossom reveals a complex fragrance reminiscent of apricot, peach, jasmine and tiaré flower, with a full-bodied, oily texture. A delicacy!
