The soothing aroma gently envelopes my senses. As I inhale the woodsy floral scent rising from the steaming leaves, I feel the excitement of a first morning in a new country and the relief of returning home.
Us Two Tea’s Osmanthus Oolong embodies a balanced blend of flavors perfected by the expertise of Taiwanese tea farmers. Each infusion releases a warm sunset on the palate - floral, fruity, woodsy, and smooth. The intoxicating scent of Osmanthus flowers is combined with high quality Oolong tea leaves, sourced directly from the majestic peaks of Taiwan’s Nantou province.
The buds of delicate Oolong leaves slowly open from their winter slumber to greet the oncoming spring, kissed by the cool mists and rolling winds of the sweeping mountains. Just at the peak moment of maturity, they are gently plucked in twos and threes. Their leaves are rolled to later release the rich array of grassy and nutty flavors locked within.
I look down into my cup of Osmanthus Oolong and I'm reminded of the magic in all of earth's creations. Steeped in my hands is the alchemy of the elements of life. Steep after steep, the nuanced aromas and the golden hue change like the setting sun.
