From The Here’s Hoping Teabox 3.

I was expecting not to like this, but in the end I slot this one as okay. I haven’t been enjoying Verdant’s yabao, but I thought the concept of this tea too interesting to pass up. I went light on the dry leaf here.

Pretty fun tasting – spruce, honey, ginger, light cinnamon. A very warm tea. Very wild, untamed forest kinda feels to it. It’s about as natural as you are gonna get to a snickerdoodle tea without adding any flavoring oils. But yeah, it’s not like actual snickerdoodle tea – it’s got that lightness of a snickerdoodle but not that tartness I associate with cream of tartar use in the cookie. Maybe if I made a snickerdoodle cookie while camping..
I’m still not digging the yabao, but glad to of tried this one. thanx HHTB!

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl

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.
