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 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
