From driftwood tea

Organic Oolong 17 is considered to be Thailand’s finest tea. Oolong 17 was developed from imported Taiwanese stock and, given Mae Salong’s similar altitude and climate, is highly comparable to the quality and taste of high mountain teas grown in Taiwan.

Key Flavours: Oriental flora, edges of soft cream and a delicate tropical fruit aftertaste.

Backlog:

A really good Oolong. Strongly vegetative in the aroma, but the flavor tends to be a bit more on the mild side than the aroma suggested. It still has a vegetal tone, but, not nearly as strong. I’m really impressed with Driftwood’s quality.

Sweet, buttery but not so much of a creamy buttery note… it’s more of a taste than a texture. This one becomes more floral as I continued to infuse.

Oh boy am I ever behind! Review just posted on http://sororiteasisters.com/
for this really amazing oolong!

here are snippets:

Organic Oolong 17 from Driftwood Tea brings us an oolong that is for the faint of heart. That’s right, IS, rather than isn’t. This is a very delicate, soft, gentle, oolong that does not pack a powerful punch. It is lilting, and lovely. This is the perfect oolong for those that typically do not like oolong’s rougher edge.

There is a slight resemblance to a Dong Ding, but more like Dong Ding’s well-mannered female cousin. She is younger, more playful, and less intense, yet has enough of that robust nature that you know your drinking a tea of quality. Yet on the other side you get her floral breath that beckons you to come out and play with her in the sunniness of her color, and she makes everything feel cozy and smooth with her creaminess.

LOL, «She is younger, more playful, and less intense, yet has enough of that robust nature» such a clever description:-) If there was a dating eHarmony for tea, I would totally have a date with that tea!

This is Floral and Creamy! More floral than Creamy, I think. As it cools I can taste more of a sweet-leaf to it, too! Another non-nonsense type of tea…this time around a nice, solid Oolong for the stash! Very pleasant! Nice to sip! Nice to Gulp!
