One of the famous Chinese gui hau (orange blossoms), osmanthus is used to scent pouchong tea. Quite subtle and incredible to drink alone or as a dessert tea, it is slightly sweet and has a lovely floral nose reminiscent of peaches with no flavoring added. Makes a naturally sweet iced green tea. Use 1 rounded teaspoon tea per 6-ounce cup of spring water at a temperature of 80° to 90° C. (180° to 195° F.) and multiple short steepings.
