Ah, this tea is old! I got after sampling it when it was released. Was that two years ago? My tin still has the old name, Oh Christmas Treat on it.
Anyways, 1 serving left! I made a mega mug size this morning of this tea.
Of course, I was so zoned out, I dumped the leaf into my mug without a filter in it. Sigh. So I had to scoop the tea out.

Yum, I feel the pu’er is mellow here, I couldn’t tell I was drinking it if I was unable to see the colour of the tea. Smells chocolate orange, taste chocolatey with a zesty orange flavor. I used to love love love this tea, but I found Butiki’s 3 Friends even better!

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 and knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

To contact me for reviews, check out details at OolongOwl.com/about or email me at [email protected]

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.
