Wow, I’m getting luck on picking the perfect tea for the mornings – Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble was worth screwdrivering open the tin for! Slight tart rhubarb with sweet strawberry. Getting a little stemmy flavor from the tea as well.

The tin for this tea is pretty damaged. Actually, many of my tins from DT are dinged up from shipping. however, with my most recent DT order all my tins came out perfect – they were wrapped carefully. I was quite happy!

Anyways DT, bring this tea back!

I swear the people who work customs are evil. Half of the time I order Davids Tea the box comes ransacked and with a big hole in it.

Oh totally. I’ve ordered from DT when I lived in Canada and everything came in perfect each time. When shipped from to the US my box comes pretty beat up. My last order seemed in decent shape though!

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
