Hosmanthus Blossoms

The Osmanthus Fragrans or Sweet Olive is an evergreen shrub with beautiful foliage and clusters of small, very fragrant flowers. In China, this tea is especially prized not only for its taste but also for the beauty of its leaves.

Hosmanthus Flower Infusion is a Chinese specialty, prized for its delicate aroma and delicious floral taste, with hints of honey and sweet summer apricots.

Place of origin

Guanxi, China.

Infusion method

We recommend using glass teapot. For a classical preparation according to the Western style, we recommend 5 grams of flowers (about 2 teaspoons) per 500 ml of water, with a temperature of 90°C for an infusion time 3-8 min according to personal taste.

If you want to prepare the infusion by the Oriental method (Gong Fu Cha) with a gaiwan with a capacity of about 150 ml, we recommend using 5 grams of flowers to make multiple infusions.

Heat the water to a temperature of 90°C and an initial infusion of 30 seconds. Keeping the water at the same temperature, you can then continue to take advantage of the same leaves by adding more water and increasing the infusion time by 10 seconds each time (30-40-50...).

For an interesting combination of flavors and to further enhance its health benefits, these Osmanthus flowers can be infused together with tea, especially Cooked Puer and Red teas.


In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), Osmanthus flowers are used to warm the stomach, freshen breath, relieve coughs, and help with tired eyes and blurred vision.

If they are infused with Puer shu tea, the following benefits can also be obtained:

1. Slimming and weight loss
2. Reduction of blood lipids
3. Reduction of blood pressure
4. Stomach strengthening
5. Anti-inflammatory and anti-sterility effects
6. Anti-aging effects
7. Increased skin radiance
