75

I got 3 samples from Physique and Jade blend is the first one for me to try.

Overall – Jade blend is a tasty blend of strawberry, melon and cucumber with a bit of a herby bite – very good for someone who wants a cool, juicy fruity tea hot or iced. If you are looking for a slimming tea, this one tastes pretty darn good, as I felt full drinking it. I got 2 decent resteepings out of it.

The bag performs not so great – leaking out grainy sandy bits that feel really rough on the tongue when you get to the end of your cup. The grainy effect stays for a couple resteepings. I strongly recommend to steep this tea using other methods. I used an ingenuiTEA, which filtered out all the texture.

I’m finding this hard to rate here on Steepster. Taste, for me a 85. With the sandy bits, a 50 to 65.

I went pretty indepth with photos and review on my blog, so please check it out! http://oolongowl.wordpress.com/2013/01/17/jade-blend-oolong-by-physique-tea-tea-review/

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
