I had to get this tea, it sounds so crazy to me that I needed to try it. potato bits?

DRY: lots of fun potato cubes in this tea – I want to eat! Smells like appley. Bit annoying to measure the tea, the leaves are resisting my teaspoon. No, you must be steeped into tasty tea!

STEEPED: Warm, light spice, apple smell. THOSE WHITE CUBES ARE MINE! OOMMNOMNOMNOMM potato! The apple bits are nice and sweet. Very pale yellow colour. This tea had no chance for being a resteep since I ate all the fun bits.

TASTE: Mmmm, applesauce tea? I’ve had this tea’s base, Huangshan Mao Feng, and it’s very good, juicy buttery corn and refreshing – works very well with the apple and potato.
The slightly spiced apple flavor is all natural. The potato is interesting, it kinda adds a flavor of texture – does that make sense? It doesn’t physically add chunkyness, but adds an interesting depth of savory light potato flavor. Overall, the flavoring is light, but juicy.

COMMENTS: POTATO CHUNKS SO CUTE! I wanna draw little faces ^ _ ^ on them, lol! This tea is really fun, unique and interesting to me. Though, you gotta be into light flavoring.

good to know this one is light on the flavouring…or a lighter tea..however you want to look at it. I only have 3 friends and the plum one coming so I can still try and decide on this one :)

Bio

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 am also a crochet / knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

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.

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

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 512 Teas May 2015.
