Osmanthus Supreme Tea is composed of some of the finest Oolong tea scented with fresh Osmanthus flowers. The Oolong tea used in Osmanthus Supreme is of a higher quality than the Oolong tea used in the regular Osmanthus Oolong. Osmanthus is an evergreen shrub with attractive foliage and clusters of small, very fragrant flowers. These flowers are also used in some of the world's most famous and expensive fragrances. When steeped the tea has a faint sweet osmanthus aroma combined with oolong undertones and a yellow color. The taste is mildly oolong transforming into a strong osmanthus aftertaste.
The water used to steep this tea should be about 185-195°F or 85-90°C. Use about 2 teaspoons (3 grams) of tea leaves for about every 5 ounces (150 milliliters) of water. A steeping time of about 3-5 minutes is recommended with more or less time depending on the desired concentration. As a rough guide, the higher the temperature of the water or the greater the amount of leaves used, the shorter the steeping time should be. The tea leaves should uncurled for full flavor. For the ultimate enjoyment, a traditional Chinese Yixing teapot is recommended for loose oolong tea. The teapot should be half filled with leaves and initially steeped for 45 seconds to 1 minute with the steeping time increased by an additional 15 seconds for each successive steeping. The leaves may be steeped multiple times.
