One year ago, I made a special promise. This tea set was created to honor that promise. Osmanthus Oolong is a very rare combination of oolong tea and Osmanthus, an aromatic flower grown in East Asia. Taiwanese farmers use Osmanthus to infuse the tea with the flower's unique fragrance and taste.
Drinking this tea in my tiny New York apartment, I am transported back to the cloudy day when I got lost in the tea hills of Taiwan. Without any GPS signal, I drove down a small dirt road surrounded by trees. Taking in the mellow jasmine scent in the air, I noticed a young man approach me. I explained why I was visiting Taiwan and how I got lost. The smile that flashed across his face was so pure and sincere, it seemed to light up the world. Sitting inside his home across from him and his father, I tried their homemade Osmanthus Oolong tea for the first time. Full of fragrance, it was so refreshing and smooth. As they handed me a small bag of tea as a gift, I promised that I would come back. One year later, here we are with “The Blossom” tea set - the best farm to table experience — from their home to yours.
