I got this tea awhile back.. maybe 2 oz? And I just sipped it down, didn’t last long! I’ve only made this tea iced, and tonight I needed a long steeping tea (10 minute steep uggg) while I load the dishwasher at a snail pace. It’s jiujitsu thursday and I’m super tired, got to the point where my opponent would grab me to take me down, and I’d just crumple to the floor.

Very berry – so berry, its hard to figure out whats going on, plus hibiscus thrown in there. This round? kinda blackberry mostly with a hint of raisiny notes. Hmmm, this tea is okay, a little flat but lots of berryness going on so that makes up for it a bit.

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 am also a crochet and knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

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.

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 573 Teas – August 2015.
