Oolong Owl’s Black Tea Week!

I was trying to get an unflavored tea reviewed, but ran out of time due to mass amounts of vacuuming that had to be done. Ugg, I hate vacuuming!

Turtle Cheesecake? Yum! Steeped up plain, I enjoyed the black tea base with end sips that tasted like chocolate, buttery caramel and nuts. Sadly, no cheesecake.
Once I added some german rock sugar, the cheesecake flavoring came out, but less nutty flavor. Overall, I wish the cheesecakeyness was stronger, but overall a nice dessert tea.

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk. I am also a crochet and knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

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.
