From driftwood tea

Quite simply an exceptional jasmine tea. Our Premium Jasmine Oolong has been crafted by skilled tea makers who artfully combine high quality tea, from Taiwan’s Nantou County with fresh, locally grown, jasmine blossom. The two are delicately layered and left overnight in the cooling air while the jasmine naturally imparts its sweet floral scent onto the tea. This process is repeated several times before the tea is finished by hand. The resulting leaves when brewed produce a naturally sweet and deeply aromatic jasmine tea, a world apart from the bitter, artificially scented ‘Chinese restaurant’ jasmine tea so often served in the UK.

Key Flavours – Sweet aromatic jasmine with a rounded oriental flora note.

Yesterday, I received a HUGE box from my SororiTea Sister (aka TeaEqualsBliss), so I have her to thank for many of the teas that I will be tasting over the next few weeks. Yay! Tea!

This is the first of the teas that I’m trying from said box. I mean… hello? Jasmine? Oolong? New company I’ve not tried before? Yep, that’s got ME written all over it.

So, I got out my beloved Jasmine Yixing mug. I’ve three yixing mugs, one for Alishan Oolongs, one for Jasmine teas (except for jasmine black teas), and one for My Precious yellow teas. I love my Yixing Mugs, and I love that they’re dedicated to one tea. It makes it a little more special when I brew one of these three teas.

This Jasmine Oolong is amazingly good. The jasmine is sweet and tastes so pure and natural. No icky perfume-y taste here. Just simple, subtle, DREAMY jasmine notes. For those who don’t like jasmine, you should try this tea. While I am always quick to note that not every tea is for every palate, I believe that more often than not, those who think they do not like jasmine have simply tasted an ill-prepared jasmine. For good jasmine flavor, the jasmine blossoms should be layered with the tea in the early stages of processing, allowing the essence of the jasmine flower to be absorbed by the newly harvested tea leaf and not added as a flavoring oil after the tea has been processed.

Now, I shall step off my jasmine soap box and remark upon the beauty of this tea. It is soft and silky. Absolutely lovely. Perfect. I love this.

I have one xiying teapot just for wiyi oolongs. I got another one today for sheng pu-erh. I think I need a third for shu. :)

ScottTeaMan

Where did you get your Yixing Amy??

LiberTEAS

I don’t have the teapots, I must admit that I love my gaiwans for brewing too much to stray from them. But, I do love my Yixing Mugs.

ScottTeaMan

Where do you buy your Yixing mugs Liberteas??

TeaBrat

I got mine in Chinatown today. It was a real bargain, I will do a blog about it soon. :-)

ScottTeaMan

Can’t wait, but I guess I’ll have too.

@ScottTeaMan: If memory serves me, I purchased my first two on ebay when Jade Teapot was going out of business. The third one I found on my trip to Arizona a couple of years ago, but I don’t remember the shop in which I found it.

Upon Infusing this – I got a whiff of Honey and Jasmine. I’m not real sure where the honey came from…that was rather ODD but pleasant, regardless.

Post infusion – I must say – this is one of the more pleasing jasmine oolongs I have tried! I have been known to see-saw on my Jasmine likes and dislikes but this is tender and true!

It’s sweet, it’s floral, it’s springy, it’s nature in a cup! Two thumbs up!

Kittenna

Ooh, jasmine oolong. Hard to know whether I’d find that delicious or overly floral!

TeaEqualsBliss

I didn’t think it was overly floral :) That is one of the things I go back and forth with in most Jasmines I try, too!

Hesper June

My goodness, as of a few minutes ago I tried my very first cup of Dragon Pearl Jasmine…and now I hear of a Jasmine Oolong!
I feel another tea order coming upon me:)

A very delicate jasmine taste but surprisingly I also got a whiff and then taste of CINNAMON in this cup! Strange but I liked it!
This is a sample from my SororiTea Sister LiberTEAS
I have noticed Driftwood Teas a few times being reviewed here and have been curious about them mostly due to their name, Driftwood, which I have a personal love for Driftwood – thus the name made me want to try their teas.
This is a very light oolong, there is not a ton of strong flavor in this cup but it is very interesting even still.
I would have this as an afternoon tea or evening tea.

Naturally sweet and aromatic, as the description states. It’s another one of my favorites!
