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!

Bio

I thought my profile needed a facelift, so here we go:

My obsession with tea really started around October 2012 when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed going out to afternoon tea with my mom. I was really into An Afternoon to Remember’s creme brulee tea, since they had an afternoon tea place at that time, which has since closed…so sad and I haven’t found a good replacement.

So, I kinda went nuts when I discovered both DavidsTea and Lupicia in the SF mall, and I still frequent them, though my tastes have substantially changed over time from wanting to try all the teas to being a bit more particular.

Once I discovered steepster, literally by looking up reviews of a DavidsTea tea, I was hooked! So many tea companies I never heard of and everything sounding so delicious!

I found I still love dessert teas, like flavored black teas, but I also really enjoy oolong (both green and roasted). I occasionally enjoy flavored rooibos and white teas. I’ve had a rough time with puerh, and still think it tastes like leather. Recently, after having some really amazing teas from Teavivre, I can now say I love unflavored Chinese black teas and green teas.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Teavivre, Golden Moon, Butiki, Lupicia, and DavidsTea.

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! :)
