907 Tasting Notes
Wow, this tea is yummy! It is the first rhubarb tea I’ve had that isn’t tart crazy hibiscus flavor!
Rhubarb + Custard is very creamy – like drinking piles of milky custard ontop of cooked smushy rhubarb. That custard taste is just dreamy and amazingly vegan as well!
I’m not into red rooibos and found the rooibos flavor fairly masked, only peaking as a little aftertaste with the stevia, once the thick creamy aftertaste is gone.
Very tasty! I’d reorder this again!

annoyingly, I couldn’t find the amigurumi bird penguin thing I used on the last Bluebird Tea Co review. I need to make more owls, but these days I’ve been fighting knee injury and annoying headaches (shhh and Nintendo 3DS playing)
I share a bit of this tea with my roommate, who’s health has been not so great and had chemo this morning. The nurses have been telling him to drink more tea too! I’ve been giving him some of my older teas, and trying to plan an order too.
See my previous notes / blog entry for review of this tea – he steeped it for like 30 minutes because that’s how he rolls! My roommate was very impressed with the flavor and “it has the perfect amount of lavender”.
I made this iced, with slices of lemon, frozen strawberries and I threw in some chia seeds for texture. Very very tasty, strawberry tangy tastic!
Not sure if I’ll get more of this tea, but I will be doing another Steep City order, but I’m just so piled up with teas at the moment.
I was very excited for the new Persimmon Tree teas to come out (and try!) and Butterscotch looked the coolest of the new line up!
The white tea base is nice, adding lightness to the butterscotch buttery smokey flavor. The tea has a nice, savory end with a bit of spice. Sweetened, Butterscotch becomes more like liquid candy!

Very lovely sheng!
The flavor just gets better and better each infusion, peaking around 6 to 9th infusion. Great notes of cherry, sweet apricot, mineral and a little smoke. Later infusions I really enjoyed as there was a fantastic unami savory thing going on!

Are pu’er picks safe for owls?
Now this is how you start a morning! With this tea!
Obviously not how my husband is starting his morning. He got breakfast in bed, he took a bite, and slowly flopped over asleep. Ugggg.
Solid tea! Always love the marshmallow/orange/chocolate combo! I prefer the shorter steep time to keep the marshmallow in check.
My computer is on the second floor of my house and my tea set up is in the downstairs kitchen. I refuse to go up and down the stairs on this stupid brazilian jiujitsu injured knee – so today’s oolong tea is a not a gaiwan super reinfusion type.
Peach oolong from Della Terra. Okay. Okay hot – moreso a bit of peachyness to compliment the base. However, this tea iced is very good! I like this more than a black peach tea iced. The peach comes out very well and the savory green and floral oolong base snuggle well with the peach.

Yes! Nothing like waking up to realize I jacked my knee somehow yesterday in jiujitsu. Must of been when I was tossing that large purple belt guy around. Felt fine yesterday, sort of. Oh whatever, always something injured on me! I’m gonna ice/heat my leg and play fire emblem!
I was craving caramel so bad this morning too! Must of been that Mandala Milk oolong from yesterday! This tea came out okay, little more mix of cream cheese than usual, but good. Nice wakeup tea treat!
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! /spiraling out of control
SIP DOWN! Love this tea – the floral and fruity is super yummy, with a cute orange red appearance too! Best iced tea! I’m getting a little cherry like flavor with the tea leave dredges.
Crap crap, that means I should do another SteepCity order, and it will not be a small order too. I have so much tea that I haven’t even tried yet, kind of scary. I remember the old days of “yay new tea, try it right now!” to now “not enough time to try all these teas. You Mr. Oolong I will try next Tuesday and Pu’er 2012 on Monday” Yeahhhh.
(come on guys, I’m the only one with tasting notes for this tea, give em some love!)
Oolong Week at Oolong Owl!
Mandala’s Milk Oolong? A M A Z I N G
The smell of this tea is like caramel candy! Taste? thick caramel, buttery peas, vanilla buttercream and the perfect sweetness. In later infusions, there is some sunny floral and fresh grassy notes. In the final infusions, mango notes. Love it!
The leaves expand to crazy huge sizes too! Impressive quality tea!
