Tea Olive Plant
Osmanthus fragrans, also known as the tea olive plant, produces the intoxicating little osmanthus flowers that are used to infuse green, black and oolong teas.
The Tea Olive Plant is native to asia, and the flowers have been harvested and dried for centuries. You can often find chinese tea with the prefix Gui Hua which denotes that the tea leaves have been infused with sweet osmanthus.
The osmanthus flowers smell is one of my favorites, and once you smell the flower, you won't soon forget it! It reminds me of ripe and juicy peaches or apricots on a warm summer day.
This sweet and wonderful scent is transferred to the tea leaves while the tea is drying. The oils pass to the tea leaves, infusing the warm and sweet aroma.
The result is when you brew tea infused with osmanthus flowers, a sweet and warm scent and flavour is present.
Osmanthus flowers are one of my favorite to use to enhance the flavour of any tea, but adding it to my favorite delicate white teas is a true enjoyment.
