Sip down!

I gotta say, this tea is lovely. Cool name! Still tastes like minty cream soda to me, with a slight astringency.

Must drink down samples to make room for more tea! Maybe I should just buy more tea tins.

How was the base tea on this one? I’m very tempted to try it, but haven’t had terribly great luck with the few teas I’ve sampled from 52teas. (I know I’m a wierdo.)

Awkward Soul

I only had a sample, but the base was fair. Overall, I prefer 52 teas green, white or honeybush bases over their blacks. Need to fuss with steeping times and temps a bit too.

Lindsey

Yeah, I didn’t fare too well with the blacks I tried. But this sounds like it might be a better fit for me.

Kittenna

This one isn’t overly finicky, not like Sun & Cloud Mist. I used approximately the same infusion parameters as Awkward Soul, and it worked great (I wouldn’t go over 82C or 2.5 mins).

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
