Enjoy the scent and flavor of these sweet Osmanthus flowers, while combining them with green or black tea leaves in a cup of hot water. Osmanthus tea helps improve complexion.
Flavor: Exquisite bright flavor. Floats along the pallet to a sweet finish. Has almost a candy quality to it.
Directions: Add the amount of botanicals per a recipe, as desired, or as directed by a health practitioner. The proper way of extracting botanicals depends on parts used. Flowers, fruits and leaves can usually be steeped or decocted (boiling over fire) while stems, barks and roots typically require decocting.
In a Desktop Botanical Garden™ Glass Tea & Elixir Maker, add 1 part botanical(s) and 5-8 parts water, steep or decoct for 5-20 minutes. You can boil water directly in the Elixir Maker. Repeat this process for 2nd or 3rd extraction until all active constituents have been extracted.
