The final sample I received from Physique teas, TY!

I dig the Gaba Oolong base here – very good flavor that resteeped well! The berry fruityness was on the light side which sadly did not stay in future infusions. I noticed the same herby bite that was in their other blend, Jade – which I quite like.

I like Jade blend more for the more unique fruity flavor, though Orchid had a better base.

and POW! The tea bag exploded! Sigh. You’ll probably want to remove this tea from its bag too.

Lol the tea bag exploded??!!!

Awkward Soul

yeah, I peeped in my small tea pot and there was a hole with leaves bursting out! Their tea bags felt durable, so not sure what happened. Unless the tea was trying to escape and burst into dance http://youtu.be/39YUXIKrOFk “I’m too sexy for my tea bag, yeh!” Ohh no, tea hyper (not from orchid blend though)!

Profile

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
