A gentle oolong (formerly Chang-e Forever) that melts with citrus and apricot notes of osmanthus petals for a floral bouquet with a touch of sweetness. It’s our tribute to Chang-e, the Chinese moon goddess, who according to legend lives on the moon among golden, sweet blossoms.

Ingredients

Chinese Oolong tea, osmanthus flowers

Preparation
Quantity Temperature Time
1 ½ tsp / 250 ml 80.0° C 1 infusion 1 ½ min.
2 infusion 1 ½ min.

Background Knowledge

According to Chinese legend, the oshmanthus was brought to the mortal world by Chang-e, a beautiful princess condemned to the moon in immortal solitude for betraying her warrior husband. A symbol of eternal beauty and one of China’s ten sacred flowers, the osmanthus petals delight with a divine bouquet and a range of complex flavours. To balance this aromatic finesse, this precious bloom finds a worthy match in one of our finest oolongs: The mild, pleasantly tart ball-rolled Oolong complements and contrasts the blossom’s aromatics to perfection – like love requited, forever. Traditionally used in fine perfumery, the precious golden osmanthus blossoms, with their exotic sweet musky fragrance, harmonize with the classic flavour of Oolong. Intensely aromatic, this expert blend pits layers of melon, apricot and dried fruit against deeper milky notes with a hint of lily.
