80

I took forever to getting around to trying this tea. I wanted a pink owl to go with the review, and I finally finished her last night!

8TY is pretty interesting, the floral bouquet is flipping fantastic and the sweet notes are very yummy. The woodsy cedar turned honeylike in resteep and iced. However, I was hoping for more fruity, I only got a little mystery fruityness and my 1oz bag didn’t seem to have much in goji berry.

In the end, I enjoy this blend iced the most – very refreshing!

This is such an awesome visually appealing tea too. It looks like tea that Fairies would drink :)

OMGsrsly

Now I really want to try this tea! So much so that I have a shopping cart sitting at Verdant waiting for me to click the button. :)

Aww, love the pink owl. Sounds like it would make a fantastic cold brew.

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
