Uh oh, I’m in trouble! I already have it in the back of my head “I’d love more of Mandala’s teas, they are fantastic”, its close to my birthday, I kind of wanted their tea thermos, then I decided to crack open a sample to review.. which lead me to browsing the shop some more, which enticed me to buying that thermos. Why not add some tea while I’m at it.. and more tea. Hmm, this White Peony is good, maybe I’ll try another of their whites. Hmm, that other tea looks good too, add to cart x3. Gah, stop looking and just proceed to the checkout!!!

This White Peony, whoa! Fat leaves! Very good quality and gorgeous tea to look at and steep! Nice complex, though light, flavors of buttercup floral, oak, birch with a creamy texture.

Full review on my blog, The Oolong Owl. Really nice pics of this tea too! (though, I really need that macro and prime lens for my camera) http://oolongowl.com/white-peony-mandala-tea-oolong-owl-tea-review/

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.
