drank Te Med Blåbärssmak by IKEA
1271 tasting notes

Backlog, from the Here’s Hoping tea box

I love IKEA. I love their bistro, cafeteria eating, furniture displays, wandering in the showcase, digging in the As Is section, assembling my cool furniture and all their cool swedish goodies.

Finding this IKEA tea was like “WTFBQQ they have loose leaf tea?” I’ve drank their tea at the bistro, it’s like that red rose stuff.

Taste? Ehhh, I thought it wasn’t bad. Tasted like black tea (malty with some bitterness) and artificial blueberries. It was much better iced – turning into that classic snapple like iced blueberry tea. If this IKEA tea was hella cheap, I’d buy it just for making pitchers of iced teas for the family. Other than that, probably best to find a better quality blueberry black tea.

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.
