flavor notes tropical, honey, mango
A staple of traditional Chinese and Taiwanese cuisine (used in everything from savory dishes to desserts and tea blends), Osmanthus Flowers offer a stunningly captivating aroma of honey and tropical fruit that one must experience to understand. Our Osmanthus Flowers are cultivated in southern China's Guangdong Province and make a fantastic addition to your favorite teas and baked goods; they are also equally delicious brewed and enjoyed on their own. Naturally caffeine-free.
While herbal tisanes can be brewed with boiling water, we find that a temperature closer to 180°F preserves the more delicate floral nuances of the infusion, resulting in a more satisfying brew.
