Taster’s Review:

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!

Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!

Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!

  1. 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.
