    Beautiful Tea

    This was a gift, and proved to be in its taste and visual display. Takes Tea into a whole new realm.

    More than meets the eye

    I came across Jing tea at a Robuchon outlet in Hong Kong, where I first tried this Flowering Osmanthus and instantly fell in love with it. The ones I subsequently ordered online is just as enjoyable, with the eye-pleasing blossoming and rich layering. I love the light touch of sweetness it carries.

    Delicate Awakening the senses

    Absolutely love this tea. The flavour is delicate with a hint of apricot. I like to drink this tea in the evening. The unfolding of the flower is beautiful to watch. Will definitely order again.

    A feast for the senses

    Everyone who tries this tea is blown away: from the visual appeal of it blossoming in the gong fu teapot, to the delicate apricot colour, aroma and flavour, every aspect of this tea is simply exquisite.

    Nice tea

    Great tea for Jing's 250ml gongfu teapot, the bloom fits it perfectly. This tea has a little stronger taste than most flowering teas, it's not so gentle as for example jasmine blooms - it's also less clear (contains a large amout of pollen) - you might want to pour it through a strainer. Overall, it's a great tea if you prefer stronger blooms.

    Flowering Osmanthus with fish cake

    I drunk it during a relaxing lunch with salad and baked salmon fish cakes. The rather marked taste of the fish was smoothened firstly by notes of green-tea and then by the sweet touch of Osmanthus. Brewed for 5-6 minutes in a classical glass teapot. Wonderful scent and wonderful unfolding of the flower as well. Not to be missed. Davide
