1136 tasting notes

I don’t know how I’m drinking more tea – I had dim sum with my family in memory of my grandmother in law. She loved eating this dim sum’s place chicken feet. Gawd, I wish chicken feet were boneless, I hate the work involved with eating them! With dim sum, I drank probably an entire pot and a 1/4 of tea. I think I went to the bathroom 4 times after that.

After the last bathroom trip I’m ready for more tea! Mmm, this tea is so creamy! I still wish I got more peach flavor! I’m halfway through my box of momoko!

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 0 sec

:S Chicken feet, those are one thing I have not tried, and I’m not entirely certain I could…

Awkward Soul / Oolong Owl

It’s kinda like eating the skin off a sauce coated steamed chicken. Depending where you go, the flavor is good, but too much slipping around, bits falling off and mess to eat with those wide chinese restaurant chop sticks.

I’ve never eaten chicken feet, but I have used them in chicken stock. They give it a nice yellow color & loads of collagen. A older Jewish lady told me that “it’s not chicken stock if you don’t include the feet.”

This tea is so addictive! I’m getting a little savory graham crust taste with this cup for some reason. The coconut and juicy sweet white bai mu dan is still present.

I need to do another SteepCity order soon, though I’m wondering if I should get some tea ware instead. Argg, need a bigger tea budget, lol!

So glad I ordered some of this!

That makes us so happy! We are glad you are enjoying our tea. It’s one of our favorite blends.

Sil

silly coconut lovers! However, the generally positive reviews on steepster so far, prompted me to pick up a few teas tonight while my friend in the US is still willing to bring things up to canada for me.

Sip down! I also did a brainless pour from my tea pot, missing my cup completely, pouring right on my lap. At least the tea wasn’t really hot.

Felt like trying this tea at 185F instead of the lower recommended temperature.
It came out really malty and chocolately, but with a weird, dry aftertaste. I kinda like it like this for the flavor. Alas, good bye White Chocolate. If I can sip down a few more Della Terras, I probably will do another order.

This tea is on the Last Chance DavidsTEA page! Nooo! I have nice memories of drinking this tea with my dad on christmas! Sucks to discontinue a tea, but I do like Strawberry Rhubarb combos, so I’ll search for other similar teas.

I did a blog review with pics – http://oolongowl.wordpress.com/2013/02/05/strawberry-rhubarb-crumble-from-davidstea-tea-review/ another Owly pic!

doubly sucks to have a tea that you have good memories associated with discontinued…:(

Ze_Teamaker

Awe, I liked that one. WHY MUST THE GOOD BE DISCONTINUED!?!?

Sil

Butiki will have strawberry rhubarb tea this year!! :)

Awkward Soul / Oolong Owl

I can kinda see why as they discontinued as they have another Strawberry Rhubarb tea. Still sucks to discontinue it though.

Kittenna

The first time I had this, it smelled divine and tasted like water. And then I figured out how to brew it. MMMMMMM. If it was on sale, I’d totally pick up another 50g, but as it stands, it’s too expensive and I have too much tea anyhow (and I still have maybe 20-30g of it left anyways).

Sil

Kittenna…and um i have 6?8? ounces of stacy’s coming my way feb or march as well…. so um yeah.

Kittenna

Yes, that too. Although this one tastes like crumble…. which is amazing.

I had a late night where I couldn’t sleep – so I stayed up watching Coffee Prince. Yeah, don’t watch a funny show when everyone else is asleep, I had to hold back laughing.

Woke up and I felt just run over and too lazy to make decent tea. Yay tea bags! I just tossed this in some 200f water and slouched over my art desk to stare try and stay awake. I had Mr. Owly to keep my company. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=529215080442135&set=a.517063994990577.124981.516160198414290&type=1&theater
I’ve been too lazy to change his kimono, but I think I will when spring officially arrives.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C
Lynxiebrat

I like the kimono :) and of course your Mr.Owl

Awkward Soul / Oolong Owl

The kimono is a scarf wrapped around him, with a ribbon. I got Mr. Owly at YVR airport – he’s a Northern spotted owl replica.

Mercuryhime

Coffee Prince is awesome!

Sipdown! I’m totally on a roll here for sipping down and finishing off teas!
Muhahahahaaaaaa!

This was a good cup, after I drank it my husband asked why I smelled like caramel and if he could have some. It was the tea! (he didn’t want any once he found out it was tea)

Oh man, this tea is super yummy! It’s totally not eggnog season right now, but I was saving to try this tea for the perfect day, and I totally regret not trying it sooner!

The eggnog flavor is perfect, I like it more than my non-dairy options for eggnog. I wanna try steeping it with a cinnamon stick sometime as I do like a spicy eggnog.

sip down! Goodbye Choco Cinnamon and its cute little chocolate stars. Last cup is so so as I got mostly dredges and not many chocolate stars.

I’ve been sipping down quite a bit lately, I should do a new tea order! haha!

I watched way too much Korean dramas yesterday – I got hooked on the show “Faith” and I think I watched 4 or 5 episodes. Since I vegged out the entire day, I feel drained today.

This tea kinda is like a green tea, with a little lotus seed and walnuts steeped up. I would love a bit more nutty flavor, but this tea is nice as a twist to regular green tea. If you like nutty teas and want something a little different, give this one a try!

I liked the way this smelled more then tasted. have you tried Persimmon Tree’s Lotus green yet?

Awkward Soul / Oolong Owl

not yet, I was actually going to get that tea last time, but it didn’t make the cut. It’s on the list though!

Kasumi no Chajin

I’ll include the rest of my sample in our trade then when you are ready.

Claire

Your cup and saucer in your blog posts are so cute! Where did you get them, if I can ask?

Awkward Soul / Oolong Owl

I bought them both at Daiso, a japanese dollar store chain. I love their dishes!

Claire

Awesome, thanks Awkward Soul! :) I think we have a Daiso pretty close by.

Profile

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.
