May White2tea Club

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!

April White2tea Club – Tea Review

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!

March White2tea Club – Tea Review

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 – Bulang!

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!

January White2Tea Club

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!

White2tea Club December 2014 featuring 2008 Often Raw Puerh

I’m totally late with the White2tea Club December edition. Now that the holidays are over and the relatives have flown home, I finally have time to myself to drink tea by myself. No Dad lurking around with his smelly instant coffee. On the upside, my father put a dent in my spiced tea collection. I was super excited to see the offerings for this month – 2008 Often, a 250 gram sheng/raw puerh tuo with sweet wrapper artwork and a 25 gram sample of Barb’s Breakfast Black. The teas were part of a “Work Horse” theme for the month of December, … Continue reading, hoot!

White2Tea Club for November 2014 – Tea Review

I have a lot of tea, so much I didn’t buy anything during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, despite the awesome sales. My last tea purchase is the White2Tea Club, a subscription tea of the month club from the awesome White2tea. When I got the package, I was very impressed with the variety I got. I’m late with this review as I took my time, saving drinking these teas for the right day I felt like treating myself. I got around to trying 3 out of 4 of the teas for this review. Inside the November White2Tea Club: 2014 Yesheng Qiaomu 50gram … Continue reading, hoot!

2002 White2tea White Whale Raw Pu’er – Oolong Owl Tea Review

2002 White2tea White Whale raw pu’er is a 100 gram brick sold by White2Tea, online seller of quality pu’er based in Beijing. This pu’er cake is a steal! At the time I write this, $15 for a 100 gram brick (note, the price is going up in September 2014). Even for a 2012 raw pu’er 100 gram brick $15 is a good price. The story on this pu’er cake is White2Tea found it nice and aged in a corner, with no wrappers, in a pu’er warehouse – at a bargain – so we get this cake at a bargain too! 2002 White2tea White … Continue reading, hoot!

2014 New Amerykah 2 Raw Pu’er from White 2 Tea – Oolong Owl Tea Review

 2014 New Amerykah 2 is a raw/sheng pu’er from White 2 Tea, Beijing based online tea seller. I snagged a sample of this tea from the 2014 USA/Canada Reddit Traveling Tea box. I have some other teas from White 2 Tea in my possession already, but I really wanted to try New Amerykah.  Is it weird that I wanted to try this tea purely because the art on the pu’er wrapper is SO FREAKING COOL. LOOK AT IT. NERDGASM. This is the first time I’ve reviewed something out of a traveling tea box, but I figured I might as well jot some notes … Continue reading, hoot!

2014 White2Tea 46&2 Raw Pu’er – Oolong Owl Tea Review

2014 White2Tea 46&2 Raw Pu’er is a tea from 2013 Jingmai leaves, spring 2014 pressed. This pu’er is from White 2 Tea, Beijing based online tea seller. First off – this has got to be the coolest pu’er name! When this tea arrived the other week, it spawned a Tool marathon for a few days, with a few extra plays of Forty Six & 2. White 2 Tea confirmed with me that the name of this pu’er is a reference to the Tool song! White 2 Tea has some really neat, modern pu’er cake wrapper art. I’m working off a sample so I don’t have … Continue reading, hoot!
