drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
935 tasting notes

I’m thinking this chai is a staple for me, but not in a sense that I drink everyday, but I love to have on hand – also seems a decent shelf life to last a year until it comes back in stock. It better go back in stock in the fall! With that said, bumping the rating on this tea!

Anyways, very good latte this morning – pumpkiny, sweet, smooth. Very awesome with dark agave syrup, the maple adds even more oomph.

Pumpkin chai distracted me temporarily, I’ve been CRAVING Beard Papa’s cream puffs for 24 hours, and I need to wait another 24 hours until I get some.
It’s distressing at times when I find something I loved back home in Vancouver, BC that I can’t find in the LA area. However, Beard Papas are all over here, so YESSS! Please have green tea flavored cream puffs!!! Oh man, need to take extras home to have with tea!

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
