From teabento

Old Owl is hand-picked and traditionally hand-made in a time consuming and skilful way. The dark green balls smell sweet, buttery and creamy with lovely floral notes. The infusion has a deep fragrance, with hints of osmanthus. The taste is sweet, thick, smooth and complex. The floral overtones are harmoniously balanced by the scent of tropical fruit nectar and the sweetness of butter roasted chestnut. Re-steeping of the tea also uncovers green notes, which give a refreshing finish to the cup. A real treat!

#adventageddon Day Thirteen – 1/6

We’re past the halfway mark, baby!! That is so exhilarating, but also horrifying because it means about half the month has already and it’s just insane to think about time passing so quickly. Also, now that we’re past day twelve it means adding in the 52Teas “12 Days of Christmas” teas to the mix – so six teas a day.

The good news for today is that I’m already through all six teas! That means tonight I get to drink what I want to drink! Hooray for that! I’m even having a calm enough work afternoon that I can get through a couple of the tasting notes.

This Dong Ding was a life saver today – by pure coincidence every other tea from the day’s calendars ended up being spiced in some way so having a straight tea within spice notes was a breath of fresh air! I saved it for my last tea, as a sort of celebratory cuppa, and am sipping on it right now. I wanted to Gongfu it but there’s not enough leaf in the day’s sample for the size of gaiwan that I have at work – so Western cuppa it was!

This is so creamy and smooth, and maybe that’s because it’s following five spiced teas but I’m really finding myself enamored with the buttery floral elements and sweet toasty nutty notes that are emerging from this cup. It’s probably the most perfect thing that I could have made to wrap up the week because, man, it’s been a stressful one and everything about today’s cup just screams “cozy” to me!

Ugh, I’m still shocked that we’re already coming up to 2020.

Thanks Ning-Ning and Teabento for allowing me to try and review your teas! :) Shipping was super fast. I decided to try this one first.

It’s really nice—buttery, floral, a little fruity, and a bit nutty as well. It reminds me of the Taiwan oolongs I’ve had before. Great start to trying your teas! Super impressed with the packaging too.

Thanks again!

Yeah, I was surprised! Some things shipped within the U.S don’t even get to me that fast.
