From driftwood tea

This second flush Doke Organic Silver Needle White Tea shows how this family run garden is constantly innovating (Chinese Silver Needles are only harvested once per year). Like most second flush pickings these loose leaves are slightly darker yet, here this simply concentrates the delicious white tea flavours – a truly extraordinary Silver Needle tea.

Key Flavours: Soft dried fruits – apricots and peaches – hints of straw and a delicate sweet long lasting aftertaste.

WOW! This is a LOVELY Silver Needle! It really IS!

Soft fruit and pine needle aroma. Creamy, clean, Sweet-floral, apricot-type flavor.

Completely IMPRESSIVE!

Full review on http://sororiteasisters.com/ on the 26th of March but here are the snippets:

Doke Organic Silver Needle Second Flush from Driftwood Tea offers a crisp, clean, and juicy sweet cup.

The mouthfeel is what I can only describe as medium, not light yet not heavy, it is somewhat brothy but it has a very nice cleansing effect on the palate.

The natural sweetness is delicious but I find the fruity notes very light, more apricot than peach on my palate.

I must admit this is not my all time favorite tea from Driftwood tea, but then again they have so many teas I have throughly loved, and obviously white tea is not something I drink a lot of. I enjoy it, but have to be in the mood for a straight white tea.

Backlog:

A really excellent Silver Needle … one of the best that I’ve tried. Crisp and clean and sweet. A really flavorful cup, but with the delicateness that I like from a Silver Needle.

Only a very slight astringency from this tea, this is more “juicy” than astringent. If you’re one who tends to shy away from astringent teas, this one should be to your liking!
