Osmanthus oolong is my favorite tea of all time. It was my "gateway" to Tiawanese oolongs and drinking better tea in general. The floral aroma is so perfectly luscious one wonders why anyone bothers with jasmine.
Quality varies from supplier to supplier, but the Gui Hua has been consistently good, at a very reasonable price. It truly is a champagne on a beer budget.
This might be the smoothest darker green type of oolong that I’ve tasted thus far. It reminds me a lot of the first oolong I drank which entered me into the world of tea slowly. I’m unsure what roman letters to align together in creation of English words to conclude remarks for this tea… I just really enjoy it.
This is a high quality, delicate Oolong tea scented with the incomparable peachy-apricot aroma of Osmanthus flowers. Absolutely delicious!
Surprisingly nice and drinkable tea. Non-tea-drinkers seem to like it too, because of the flowers.
Really taste like a floral peach. The flowers seem to get bitter with long steeps but it makes great iced tea.
