Osmanthus Black Dragon comes from Xihu, Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province—the same tea production area of the renowned Long Jing green tea—is a world-famous black tea with high reputation.
The dry leaves of Black Dragon are as thin as hair and as tight as silver hooks topped with fine golden hair. Brew the tea with boiled water for about 5-15 seconds （depends on personal preferences) as the first infusion and then you will be deeply attracted by its beautiful tea soup and wonderful taste. Our Osmanthus Black Drago is made with fresh Osmanthus buds to give it another layer of floral aroma, so you can feel a complex of floral fragrance with a special sweet smell of Prunus mume (or called Japanese apricot) and Osmanthus. Meanwhile, the tea will provide you an incredibly smooth mouth feel with hints of sweetness and moisture.

I didn’t see any Osmanthus flowers in the dry leaves, but once infused, I could see the flowers floating. Pretty cute! The tea smells and tastes like peach oolong. Delicious. The black tea doesn’t get bitter even if I steeped too long. I wish I could steep the leaves a few more times but it only gives 3-4 infusions before it loses the flavour. Lovely tea, I’ll buy it again!
very special! like the floral note.
It smells authentic, fresh, and super smooth. Love the flavour!!
the osmanthus black oolong is a very special tea, surprise me lot. the osmanthus sweet is nicely blended with black dragon well.
