I prefer to do a full proper review right away, but I just could not resist giving this tea a sample. Steep City was really cool to let me have a sample. I was torn between buying this or the Citrus Sunrise oolong, but I went with the oolong as I figure I’d prefer it more.

Anyways, I made a big bottle iced to take to dinner at the in laws. I watched my husband eat 3 plates of pasta, rolls, 4 muffin sized quiches and a giant slice of pie. He’s a slim guy, so he looks preggers with all that food in him! I ate barely half of that, but I also had lots of tea in me. Now I can’t sleep. So I’m awake, back logging about this tea and buying yarn on flash sale. Yay for late night, not totally thought out spending!

Moroccan Berry Mint. First impressions – very fresh, great balance of mint. Very berry with a nice bite of citrus. The green tea seems light but the smokey gunpowder comes though. Quite a bit going on, with the combination of flavors tasting great! The mint was nicely refreshing, making my meal less heavy feeling. However, I found this tea slightly similar to their Agua di Jamaica but with mint but less (huge) berries.

Bio

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 / 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 512 Teas May 2015.
