Brewing Suggestions

The Osmanthus flower (Osmanthus fragrans) is native to southern China and highly prized for its uniquely fragrant, fruity-floral blossoms. It is used in the production of costly perfumes and here as a complement to one of China's best known and most popular green teas. The distinctive fragrance of Osmanthus beautifully accents the rich, smooth flavor of Dragon Well for a deliciously full-bodied cup that is memorably sweet and floral. An excellent green tea for any time of day.

Osmanthus Dragon Well is a versatile tea which may be prepared either in individual gaiwans or a full-sized teapot. use approximately 3-4 grams of leaf 8-10 oz of water, 70C (158F) water and an infusion time of 1-3 minutes will produce a rich, full-bodied and sweetly floral cup of green tea.

Osmanthus Dragon Well may be re-steeped several times.

A Dragon wears flowers December 22, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Boise, ID United States  
Dragon Well is my all time favorite tea, perfectly balanced, light, yet substantive and durable.  I was very reluctant to try it with osmanthus, but it is a sublime and different cup.  Don't think of it to compare with Dragon Well, but just approach it as a completely different tea.  Very lovely.....the dragon wears flowers beautifully.
