1235 Tasting Notes
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!
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!
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.
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.

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!
