Chuck Norris once swam to the Virgin Islands. Today they’re known as the Island.

Sooo i got 3 new teas today and 3 more got stuck on the customs office but should get them soonish. They don’t like it when a box doesn’t have an invoice in it ;) I even totally forgot about that purchase. Oh well expand my dear shelves, make more room…

OK so i kinda assume that these teabags should be similar to Peach Oolong tea by Adagio – but i still added this one as a new one. It’s teabags after all, and who knows maybe its not exactly same… They are totally sealed in the little packages. Mmmm it smells nice when i open it. Very peachy.

So let’s see…
Ohhh lot of tea in the teabag. I almost never steep that much tea. Maybe i should change my habits. Says i should steep it for 5 minutes. That’s also longer than i normally steep my oolongs (more like 3 minutes).

Tea is orange. Nice peachy color.

Guess what it smells like? Yep yep peachy. I must admit i’m getting all peachy here myself…

Tastes of course peachy but oolong is almost stronger. So it’s a good oolong with sweet peachy aftertaste. Can’t judge yet on quality of oolongs. But this is quite yummy. Somewhere in between ’i’d buy it again’ and ‘gimme more’. Shall see soon how it behaves on new steeps…

I messed up second steep, first water got too mild, then i forgot it’s steeping. Anyways i still think this is a one steep great tea. Its still ok and very much drinkable but it’s not as yummy…

born with a bit of a restless, curious and exploring spirit ;) love to travel and i do it a lot lately. enjoy good food and drinks. love trying out new stuff. just about to start exploring the world of teas and i’m really enthusiastic about it ;)

EDIT 4 months later:
still a n00b here but starting to get it ;) i try to buy loose tea but i got a lot of teabags too cuz it’s easier to find here. from not liking black tea ended up love it. green can be quite good too but waiting for more real ones to try. whites are sometimes awesome, sometimes not, rooibos and fruity blends are a good replacement for juices… and so on… still excited about every new tea… loving it more every day :D

since my favorite hobby is photography i take photos whenever something is interesting. including my tea making process…
