I got this tea as part of the recent 75% off Teavana sale, it is hard to pass up that good of a sale! I wanted more oolong blends anyways.

So, opening the package – BOOM MEGA CHEMICAL ARTIFICIAL SMELL. Ew. The tea steeped up a cloudy gold orange with lots of white and dark cloudy debris. Steeped up, very pear flavored, like pear fruit juice, with a little green oolong flavor. A little on the sweet side, I’d personally not add any additional sweetener.

Resteeped, not very pear flavor, but oolong and weird tart taste. I wouldn’t resteep this tea next time. I didn’t expect this tea to resteep that well as it’s pretty fruit salad chunk mix.

Hmmm, I both like and dislike this tea. Maybe iced it’ll be much better. I like the pear flavor, but don’t like it’s really artificial of a flavor.

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
