Osmanthus Laoshan Green
A very rare and special tea from our friend Mr. Tang’s small family tea garden. Almost every one’s yard in Mount Lao has two flower plants - camellia and osmanthus. Every autumn, the osmanthus flowers blossom for only a week. The best time to harvest them is during the 3 days in the middle of the season. During these 3 days, the tiny delicate flowers are picked by hand and layered in between the fresh harvest of the Laoshan Green, then slowly roasted in low temperatures over charcoal. The green tea absorbs the delicate aromas and fragrance of the osmanthus flowers.
This tea is sweet, with notes of tropical fruit like pineapple and mango.
