This tea is just weird! And I can’t stop sipping it!

Another Here’s Hoping Travelling Teabox tea – it’s a yunnan black with tomato, sage and peach. I really dont’ taste the peach, but there’s plenty of tomato and sage.

First sip I thought “Tastes like Turkey Dinner.” The tomato is actually pretty addictively good and the base is not bad. Sage is a little over the top is the only thing holding it back until I remember there’s supposed to be peach in there, which is not present.

I might have to jack this tea.. it’s so weird!

I loved this review, Awkward Soul! The name is a bit confusing but! there actually isn’t supposed to be peach in this blend. “Wolf Peach” is the translation of the scientific species name for tomatoes. Here is a better explanation from Wikipedia:

“The scientific species epithet lycopersicum means “wolf peach”, and comes from German werewolf myths. These legends said that deadly nightshade was used by witches and sorcerers in potions to transform themselves into werewolves, so the tomato’s similar, but much larger, fruit was called the “wolf peach” when it arrived in Europe."

Ahhh, that makes sense! I did take this tea from the teabox, so more tomato sweet tea for me!

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
