600th tasting note. Also, 90 Oolong Owl blog entries! Crazy!

After some detective work, I was able to figure out what type of tuocha is this is as there is no english on the packaging. That and I was searching ebay for sheng tuochas and came across the brand! I got this tuocha from Meeka at our Steepster meet!

First few infusions are a mix of a sweet on the teeth chrysanthemum (why do I always need to google to spell that?) with the ripe pu’er earth.
Later infusions the floral gets sweeter over the pu’er. Pretty nice!

Last weekend I posted a blog entry of me trying my first tuocha, before I figured out what type it was! http://oolongowl.wordpress.com/2013/05/04/oolong-owls-first-tuocha/

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.
