The Osmanthus flowering plant is fairly common around the world. It has beautiful white flowers that release a heavenly scent, commonly compared to the Jasmine scent. An interesting legend has been told about the Osmanthus. During a terrible plague, a sky fairy took seeds from the Osmanthus plant on the moon and scattered it throughout the world. The gorgeous flowers began to bloom, then were made into wine & tea which helped cure this terrible plague. To bad its just a legend, this year could use a miracle like this one.

My two daughters bought me 5 different types of tea for Mother's Day, Rose Garden being one of them. The containers are lovely. Not only are the teas pretty to look at, they have catchy names and are all delicious.
