Ugg crappy day. Standing in lines at the Immigration office. Headachey and sore neck from jiu jitsu.

This is my first honeybush tea off 52 teas for me to buy, I’ve mostly bought blacks and greens and got rooibos/honeybush off trades.

STEEPED: Deep brown colour with smells of crumbly chocolate and peanuts. Mmmm. Bit of dark debris at the bottom of my cup that my Steeper didn’t pick up. I went 2tsp of PBCCH for an big cup of tea.

TASTE: HOLY CRAP

Okay okay. This tea tastes like a peanut butter cup but not as sweet. I get the smooth peanut taste with a hint of chocolate edging around the peanut flavor. The cheesecake twang is so there. The peanut sweet flavoring sticks to my mouth for a moment after each sip. The chocolate tastes kinda cookie like sometimes. Is it the honeybush doing that cookie taste?

Sweetened, HOLY COW!

Even more peanut buttery cup taste, smooth and cookie like. Cheesecake twang floats in and out. I think I like unsweetened more, but sweetened is good too.

COMMENTS: Wow, very very good! I’m kinda sad as I want an unlimited supply of this tea.

I actually ordered 1 more bag of this right now, despite logical thinking that 1 pouch should last me awhile. But there was only 2 left in stock. Whatever, it’s MIIINEEEEE! MINE! I’ve been looking for a great caffeine free tea, and this is it! I’m gonna make another cup.

Dammit. I knew once I read your review that after three pouches being available all day, it would now be sold out. I did nab one earlier, but you convinced me to get a second, haha.

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
