Blarg! Tired and sore this morning from brazilian jiu jitsu. Always something injured and hurting – today it’s my elbow. I wanted a fun tea this morning, and this one swapped to me by Kittena looks fun!

DRY: lots of fun chunks in this one, including mini marshmallows!

STEEPED: amber coloured cup, smells caramelly and graham cracker like. The mini marshmallows sort of melted, I ate the remainder! HEHE

TASTE: Fairly light tasting, slighty nutty and a little chocolatey. Very mellow tea, not black tea tasting or white – an interesting mix. I thought it was going to be sweet, so I didn’t sweeten it at first.
Sweetened, the chocolate comes out more and I can taste the graham crust. Not tasting marshmallows.

WHO’D LIKE THIS TEA: peeps who sweeten their teas! This one needs it! This tea is pretty light too, maybe a white tea drinker would appreciate.

COMMENTS: very light tea, and I thought I went a little heavy on the dry leaf! Sweetened, this was much much better as I could taste the smore, somewhat, but still very mild. I’d love a smore tea to be strong, malty and toasty!

Bio

I’m a crafty knitter and crocheter that loves to work on a project and drink tea. I worked as a counsellor and I chain-drink tea to keep me calm and grounded.

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.
My recommended tea shops:
Mandala Tea
Steep City Teas
Butiki Teas
DAVIDsTea
Della Terra Teas
Lupicia
Verdant Tea
Yunnan Sourcing
52 Teas / Zoomdweebies
Yunomi.us
Red Leaf Tea
New Mexico Tea Co
Bluebird Tea Co
The Persimmon Tree

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

I have a husband and a bunny who both hate tea. More for me!!!! MUUAHAHAHAHAAA
