Like all our other teas, the flavor of Golden Osmanthus comes entirely from the tea plant itself — no scenting or flavoring required for this refreshingly fragrant light roast. This cultivar may remind you of its close cousin, Tieguanyin ("Iron Goddess of Mercy"), but is a bit creamier and sweeter. As its name might suggest, Golden Osmanthus leaves have a yellow tint to them. We love this mellow oolong cold brewed or paired with a fruit platter!

Smells like love: According to legend, a young bride in 19th century Fujian brought tea seedlings from her parents' garden to her new home as a gift. Under the newlyweds' nurturing care, the seedlings flourished and grew earlier in the spring than all the other nearby tea bushes, but its leaves were notably yellower too. When they picked and roasted the golden tea, it released an enchanting fragrance of osmanthus. No wonder this cultivar quickly became so popular!

Feels like: Golden early mornings, fresh and sweet with possibilities.
