This tea is for coffee drinkers. Whether you are trying to cut down coffee and move into drinking tea, or enjoy the odd cup of coffee, Coco Creme black would be a nice coffee flavored tea for you. My dad is visiting from Canada for the holidays in a few days and he will LOVE this tea as a coffee and chai drinker.

There is a watery chocolate flavor up front, followed up with a nice brisk black tea base. The base is my fav part of this tea! The tea then has a strong coffee and creamy flavor that is a little tart and dry. It’s like having a chocolate tea slowly turn into a cup of coffee! I wish there was more chocolate (and less coffee) in the blend. Since I’m not a coffee drinker, this was too coffee for me. I can see this being a decent latte though.

I used to crochet. I’d really like to learn to knit, if I only I had more time!

Awkward Soul

I’m working on a new knitting pattern right now. Top secret! I’m also rebuilding the crochet/knitting blog once the holidays are over.

Exciting! I love your owls – I was thinking I’d like to try making them once I finally learn crochet, but know I know you have knitting patterns I’ll be keeping an eye out on your blog/ravelry.

Profile

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
