From driftwood tea

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.

My first cup of this (combination of infusions 1 & 2 following the rinse) is really quite delightful. It tastes creamy and has a rich, fruity taste. I’m used to greener Oolong teas like this one to be more floral than fruity and while this does have some floral notes, I taste more fruit tones than flower.

This first cup has a lovely complexity to it, I’m really enjoying it, and anticipating what the subsequent infusions have to offer!

I’ve had two infusions of this so far! Here are my findings…
1st infusion:
sweet and creamy slightly fruity flavor but naturally…very nice!
2nd infusion:
More vegetal and floral and not all that creamy or sweet…but still quality and flavor!

This is a very nice tea! One for around the kitchen table with family or friends or one to sip alone during meditation and reflection! Nice, indeed!
