Ooooh, another fun month with the White2Tea Club. When is the White2tea club not fun or an adventure? This month is three teas, Qilan Trees, Qilan Fire, and a 5 year aged Dahongpao brick. All oolongs, hoot! The Qilan Trees and Fire are new oolong offerings at the White2Tea shop, so being in the monthly tea subscription is nice as I get to sample the oolongs. Close up of the DHP! I’m going to drink the Qilan oolongs. As much as I want to do side by side, I’m going to drink them separately this month. SoCal has been blistering … Continue reading, hoot!
OMG This month’s White2tea club is awesome! I cannot contain my joy when I saw what I got. OOLONG! This month – Fresh Dahongpao, Aged Dahongpao, and Clover Patch Oolong. DROOL! Can I drink them all at once? I quite enjoy these tasting sets for education – I get to learn, try new teas (that some don’t get to try) and drink all the tea! I’ve never had Fresh Dahongpao nor even seen it for sale (apparently for good reason). Tasting of August White2tea Club – Fresh & Aged Dahongpao and Clover Patch Oolong Let’s start with drinking the Fresh and … Continue reading, hoot!
I recently did a big White2tea order. When I opened the box there was something in there that smelled really pungently strong. Upon sniff testing every tea in my box, this was the cake! If You Are Reading This It’s 2 Late! I kept smelling the cake it over and over, curious how a promise of sweet sheng smelled so pungent. This much confusion meant I needed to drink this ASAP. If You Are Reading This It’s 2 Late is an interesting name. I’ve already trolled people on instagram with it! With all these White2Tea cakes, I got lots of potential … Continue reading, hoot!
Tea readers, I am very satisfied with this month’s White2Tea Club – having fun exclusive pu’er cakes is really awesome! In July’s White2Tea Club – 2015 Green Shroom 250 grams and a sample of 2005 Rocket Yiwu. Look how sweet this pu’er shroom looks! I’ve never owned a mushroom shape and the video game nerd in me loves the design! 2005 Rocket Yiwu is also a fantastic offering for this month’s tea club, many people have told me that it is really good. However I could not resist the shroom and I spent way too much time messing around with my … Continue reading, hoot!
Oohhhh yeah, June White2Tea Club time! This month is impressive with newly pressed pu’er! I’m going to review both teas that were included this month, so it’ll be a long Oolong Owl post today. So, in the June White2Tea Club is 2014 Ripe Pu’er Orbs x3 and 2015 Teaclub Gourd 100g. 2014 Ripe Pu’er Orbs First up, the Balls! You get 3 Ripe Pu’er Orbs and they came with instructions, if you choose to accept them. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED HOOT! The tea balls look like wrapped truffles! I unwrapped all three orbs. I tucked two of the orbs away, setting a note … Continue reading, hoot!
I’ve been enjoying the White2tea Club with being able to explore pu’er, blacks and oolongs. I am excited for this month as the teas are a decade-aged ripe pu’er and a spring 2015 black, with the black tea building a comparison upon a previous month’s Yunnan black. Unfortunately, I ran out of time to review the black, so let’s sample the pu’er, the White2Tea Club only tea! Tasting of May White2Tea Club’s 2003 Xiaguan Crane Mark Ripe Pu’er 2003 Xiaguan Crane Mark ripe is a 100 gram tuo and a round bird nest shape. It was easy to break off pieces. For steeping instructions, I … Continue reading, hoot!
It’s Yiwu month for April’s White2Tea Club! April’s White2Tea club/ Tea of the Month teas are both rare pu’er – 2007 Rui Chang Xiang Yiwu Old Arbor and a hand rolled 2012 Guafengzhai Old Arbor Orbs. Both teas are 10 gram samples and available if you want to purchase more. Also, with being a White2Tea club member you get a coupon code for the teas that were in the box! There was a surprise this month too – a pu’er tea needle! Now I have two pu’er needle picks so the Tea Owls can battle each other! This month I’ll be sampling the 2012 Guafengzhai Old Arbor … Continue reading, hoot!
Time for the second Tea of the Month box to arrive for March – White2Tea! In this month’s White2tea club box – 2001 7542 P.O. Raw Pu’er, 2004 Yang Pin Hao Raw Pu’er and OBSX Oolong, 10 grams each. It’s a small amount of tea but when you look up each tea you’ll realize all the teas are kinda pricey. Yeah, expensive tea drinking time! Also with this month, deals for us White2Tea club members – 10% off cakes, 20% off tongs and 15% off the yancha. A pretty sweet deal! Tasting of March White2Tea Club Turns out all the … Continue reading, hoot!
February White2tea Club! If you haven’t been following my previous reviews for White2tea Club, it is a curated $29.99 monthly tea box. The teas are awesome quality with mostly pu’er, but also some oolongs and blacks. For this month the teas are two Bulang pu’er – 2012 Bulang Raw 100 gram mini cake and 15 gram sample of Spring Laochatuo from Bulang and an Orchid Dancong oolong sample to make this month less bulang crazy. I was super excited when I saw what I got this month from White2Tea. I’ve had bulang pu’er a few times, mostly stuff aged from late 2000s and … Continue reading, hoot!
I savored this month’s White2Tea monthly tea subscription club – all the teas sounded great to me! For the White2Tea club, every month you get teas that are curated by White2tea. These teas are samples from their current line up, previews to new teas to their shop, as well as some private stash and discoveries. The subscription is month to month, cancel any time. So far, all the teas I’ve received has been pretty good – I recently dropped a bunch of cash for a group order, buying more teas that I received in previous months. Good stuff! For the month of … Continue reading, hoot!
