drank Peach Oo-la-long by Honest Tea
807 tasting notes

Its pretty good. I got this pretty much free along with some other Honest Teas from a site that offered 10 off my first order. I ended up with four of these teas and some other really cool items for 5 bucks shipping.
Anyway all that aside … its good. I like having some iced teas ready to go in the fridge that I didn’t have to steep already bottled and ready to go.
What I REALLY love about this tea is that OPUS is on the label!
I had no idea until it arrived today.
If you have no idea who this is you will have to read up on it here:

Just so you know my personal love for this character – well he along with his cohort Bill the cat, is nicely and forever tattooed on my tuckis!
Oh the good ol days of careless abandon!
So not only is this tea good but every time I have it – it will bring back fond memories for me – and I don’t have to try to strain to see my own behind! :)

I love Opus! (Did you ever see their Christmas special, “A Wish for Wings that Work?”)

Indigobloom

memory tea!!! love those :P

Azzrian

gmathis I am pretty sure I recall this – oh how I would LOVE to see it now! Some things however are a blur…

Indigobloom – yes always love the memory evoking teas! :)

Gmathis: I OWN “A Wish for Wings That Work.” When I went to order it, the clerk told me there was no such thing as a Bloom County Christmas special because she was their biggest fan and had never heard of it. She was pretty surprised when my copy came in, I guess! Hysterical! We also love Calvin and Hobbes and have every book.

Azzrian: pardon me if this is too personal, but I can’t think of anything more fun to have tattooed on one’s tuckus than Opus and Bill, whom my children referred to as Opus and Phil when they were too little to speak properly! You must grin every time you catch sight in the mirror!

ashmanra

Sorry, it was Focus and Phil they called them!

What’s funny, is that every time someone writes about the pu’erh ‘touchas’, I pronounce it like I would the slang term mentioned above… and it makes me giggle.

Azzrian

Too personal naaaa Im not shy! LOL
Yeah I forget it is there ya know then I turn around and ACK!!! MY ARSE!!! Hahaha
LOL Dylan!!

Azzrian

Ashmanra that is so so cool about the movie! I bet that girl ordered her own ASAP!
That is so cute about your kids saying the names that way. :)

ashmanra

I thought it was pronounced two oh chas. I went in a tea shop and everyone who works there says it with this nasal twang like they are really speaking Chinese which is hysterical when inserted in a regular English sentence. It sounds like they are attacking the word with Kung fu. “Yes, ma’am, we do have mini T – OW – ooOOoo cha.”.

Indigobloom

okay I just have to chime in here. In Polish, Oczas (pronounced Ochas by the youngsters, and I know I’m not spelling that right) means “eyes”. So when I see Tuochas, I think.. “two eyes”

gmathis

Ashmanra, our copy of A W for W…is intact still, too. Must-watch Christmas TV.

Azzrian

LOL I pronounced it Too Ka
I have never been good at correct pronunciation of words.

Kittenna

ashmanra – in my head I pronounce tuochas the same way you do. Found out recently that I’ve been pronouncing rooibos quite incorrectly… so who knows.

Azzrian – interesting to know the things people get tattooed! I know a guy with a barcode on his butt :P

Missy

@ Krystaleyn That’s why we call rooibos kangeroo. When I look at the spelling I try to say it rue bose. I’ve been told its roy bus. blah blah fine then it’s kangeroo now even if that animal is on the wrong continent…

Bio

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
