OH my GOODNESS. This tea is absolutely DREAMY!
As I sip this tea, it is like I can feel my eyes roll back as the liquid rolls over my tongue, I feel myself being transported into some misty, fog-like state where I am lounging in a garden surrounded by jasmine vines.
This tea has such a beautiful jasmine flavor. It is not a sharp or perfume-y taste. It is soft and silky and sweet. There are notes to this that taste somewhat fruit-like, they are so sweet and succulent.
The Taiwanese Oolong is a fresh-tasting tea that has a very pleasing mouthfeel that melds beautifully with the jasmine to help create the soft taste I mentioned earlier. It tastes and feels soft and silky. Very luxurious. Very dreamy.
This is the first tea that I’ve had the opportunity to try from Driftwood Tea … but it won’t be my last. I am so very impressed with the quality of this tea. It is one of the best Jasmine Oolong teas I’ve tried, and it would definitely give some of the best Jasmine White teas I’ve tasted a run for the top spot when considering my favorite Jasmine teas. This one is a contender!

I love jasmine, we have it growing in our yard
This sounds quite delicious. I’m surprised that there aren’t more jasmine oolongs on the market; the floral quality of some of the greener oolongs seems to blend seamlessly with various floral scents (not just jasmine, but in some cases, osmanthus too), and the oolong base teas do not tend to be as picky about steeping as green teas, which sometimes can taste rather harsh if the water temperature is too hot.
Thanks for the great review, I will definitely try this one!
