Osmanthus Syrup (糖桂花, tang gui hua) is is made from fresh osmanthus flowers and white sugar. It’s a runny, jelly-like syrup that is sweet and infused with the flavor of the osmanthus flower. Compared to normal syrup, it’s lighter in flavor and has a refreshing flowery aroma.

It’s an ingredient frequently used to create traditional Chinese dessert fillings, such as the filling for sticky rice balls (汤圆, tang yuan) and mooncakes (月饼, yue bing). It is also used as a flavor enhancer, drizzled over desserts and snacks, such as honey lotus root with sticky rice.
