Had my dad sample this tea while he’s visiting from Canada.

During the week he was here, I introduced him to various teas – he occasional hits DavidsTea in the mall for free samples (lol) but doesn’t buy much. He does drink bagged earl greys.

Throughout this week, it was looking like he really likes spicy – which is ultra weird because he has stomach issues with spicy food. Spicy to him is too much oregano in the pasta sauce.

This morning I gave him a cup of this tea (that I have yet to do a official tasting) and he LOVED it! Said it was the best tea he ever had (and we had everything from 52 teas, Fusion Tea, The Persimmon Tree and Butiki) Lucky for him, it’s a DT tea so he can buy it at home.

Looks like he’s gonna buy a Steeper when he gets home now too because he likes mine.

I have a friend like that to! Apparently it doesn’t bug her when a tea is spicy, just food?!

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
