Changjiang Weekly - - TRAVEL -

The os­man­thus is a sym­bol of au­tumn, and au­tumn would not be the same with­out os­man­thus blos­soms. In Xian­ning, there are nu­mer­ous foods in­fused with the flower, in­clud­ing os­man­thus rice wine, sugar os­man­thus, os­man­thus honey, os­man­thus cake and os­man­thus tea. These nat­u­ral and green foods are fairly pop­u­lar all over the coun­try. Os­man­thus wine

With its cre­ation dat­ing back to the end of the Ming dy­nasty, the sweets­cented os­man­thus cake is made of gluti­nous rice flour, sugar, honey, and os­man­thus. It's fine and soft in na­ture, white in color, and in­fused with a strong os­man­thus fra­grance. The Hubei Xian­ning os­man­thus cake fea­tures its own unique in­gre­di­ents.

Os­man­thus wine is made of lo­cally grown os­man­thus flower. You've prob­a­bly have tried wine from grapes and plums, but you are not a true con­nois­seur un­til you have sipped os­man­thus wine.
