Osmanthus tea is a type of tea made from the fragrant flowers of the Osmanthus plant. It is a popular tea in Asia and is known for its sweet, floral aroma and taste. The tea is made by steeping dried osmanthus flowers in hot water, resulting in a light yellow or amber-colored tea that is both fragrant and sweet. Osmanthus tea can be enjoyed on its own or blended with other teas, such as green tea, black tea, or jasmine tea, to enhance its flavor and fragrance. This tea is often consumed for its sweet taste and aroma, as well as its potential health benefits, such as improving digestion and boosting the immune system.
Cold brew tea is a method of making tea where tea leaves are steeped in cold or room temperature water for an extended period of time, typically several hours to overnight. The resulting tea is a smooth, less bitter, and less astringent beverage compared to traditionally brewed hot tea. Cold brewing can also bring out different flavor notes and aromas in tea leaves compared to hot brewing. Cold brew tea can be enjoyed on its own or served over ice, and can be made with a variety of tea types, including green tea, black tea, and herbal tea. The long steeping time and lower temperature also make cold brew tea a convenient option for those who want to make tea in bulk or enjoy it on-the-go. Additionally, cold brewing can reduce the amount of caffeine in the tea, making it a great option for those who are sensitive to the stimulant.
