Now THIS is a good milk oolong! TastyBrew sent this to me in the surprise package. Thanks, TastyBrew!! This was a perfect choice for me as I’ve been thinking about getting this tea for a long time, but wasn’t sure I wanted to get stuck with 2 oz. if I didn’t like it. (They don’t sell a smaller size).

This tea has all the milky, buttery flavor that I was expecting from a milk oolong, and a nice sweet finish! I do have a sweet tooth, ya know!

Getting this sample from TastyBrew was also perfect timing, as I was already planning on ordering a large amount of blueberry crumble with the latest promotion, so I added this one to the list! Yay!!

TastyBrew

Nice! I’m glad you like it. Doesn’t it just taste like melted butter? I did it gong fu style and it stayed buttery for about 6 or 7 steeps before turning a little more vegetal. Butter then buttered vegetables. Yum!

Tealizzy

Yum! I need to do it gong fu style! I always feel like I don’t have time for gong fu though…I guess it’s time to make time for tea!

TastyBrew

I thought that at first too, but it doesn’t take any time at all since you barely steep the leaves. I like doing it because of the instant gratification! And I can actually taste the different flavors that my unsophisticated palate can’t discern when I drink tea western style.

Tealizzy

That’s a good point! Ya, I have trouble discerning flavors too.

Blueberry Crumble is really that good? I just got this one in but won’t try it until I finish off a couple other teas. Glad you like it!

TastyBrew

Blueberry crumble is definitely that good! I just ordered a big bag as well!

Tealizzy

Yes, blueberry crumble is that good!! Would love to hear what you think!

Another profile facelift! My tastes have changed a lot from when I first discovered loose leaf tea.

I can trace my tea journey back to October 2012, when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed high tea at An Afternoon to Remember, which has since closed.

I went through a period of wanting to try all the teas, and was really into flavored teas, especially dessert blacks, but my tastes have substantially changed over time.

I still enjoy the occasional flavored black or rooibos, but I’m more into unflavored black teas right now and recently, puerh. Chinese black teas are amazing…with their notes of chocolate or sweet potato, who needs a flavored tea? I had a much steeper learning curve when it came to puerh. I used to dump out cups of puerh for tasting like leather. Now, I am really enjoying them. I think it took finding good quality puerh and steeping them gong fu style to really enjoy them.

I also, on occasion, enjoy a good oolong, white, or green tea.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Mandala, Teavivre, Butiki, Golden Moon, Lupicia, and DavidsTea (for teaware mostly).

Just a note: I don’t rate my teas numerically because my iPad doesn’t like the scroll bar. Maybe someday that will change…hint hint, steepster! ;)

P.S. My profile picture is of one of my 2 cats, Holly, who is a little princess but very photogenic, and she loves boxes, including those that bring me tea! :)
