No.7 The Ambassador's Choice
Exclusive to driftwood tea No.7, The Ambassador’s Choice is an example of small farm tea at its finest. Grown on a farm in China’s Fujian Province, young leaves are lightly oxidized before being processed and rolled in a Taiwanese style. The resulting tea takes on some of the best characteristics of both China and Taiwan’s famous teas. Its early infusions are are fruity and creamy – reminiscent of Taiwanese high mountain teas – later infusions begin to develop more floral tones, similar to modern Chinese Tie Guan Yins.
Sold directly to James, quantities of this Spring 2011 harvest are extremely limited and once our stock is gone we’ll be unable to buy anymore. Due to its rarity and uniqueness this tea is James’s personal preference to serve alongside afternoon tea.
Key Flavours – A subtle balance of tropical fruits, dried apples, floral tones and hints of cream.
