This is the second Milk oolong that I’ve ever tried – Another lovely Christmas gift from my Dad (that I bought and gave to him to give to me, but still, it’s a gift. I love doing that – I am sure to get perfect gifts every time). It starts off light, fresh, and grassy. With subsequent steeps it develops a greater depth of flavor with a subtle buttery smoothness. Although this tea leans towards the grassy side, it somehow balances perfectly to provide flavor without ever pushing over into bitterness. I was hoping that the light buttery notes in the subsequent steeps would eventually emerge into nuttiness, but it never quite got there. Still, it’s a lovely tea, which re-steeps very well.

Perfect gift, perfect description :-)

Haha. We do that as well. All of us. Christmas usually means each buying his or her own presents and arriving with them at my parents’ house in the afternoon, just to take them home again in the evening. My dad and I often even have tested our presents prior to Christmas.

Haha I totally do that at Christmas too :)

Teafairy -Thanks. My Dad usually wants to buy me tea, but he has no idea about buying anything online, and when it comes to tea, he’s nowhere near as into it as I am. I know he would like to surprise me, but it’s just too difficult. I tend to buy things well in advance and give them to him (to give to me), and that way I forget about them and I’m still surprised….Sometimes my short-attention span pays off ;)

@Barbara – That sounds like fun too. Although, if I tested my tea presents I think I’d be pushing it :D

That’s my mug! I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but I like the fact that this mug is more or less clear. Plus, I can’t help but giggle when I say “ewww …I have Pooh on my mug” and people in the room gawk in horror before realizing I’m talking about Winnie. Am I easily amused? heck yeah!

A little something about my interests? – In no particular order, I love tea, makeup, paper crafting (card making), home renovations, and gardening.

As a rule, I tend to drink my tea without adding anything, but if that doesn’t work for me, I indulge in the fact that rules are meant to be broken. Yep! I’m such a rebel…sometimes I even color outside the of lines :P
