Tisano Chocolate Tea Review

Tisano Chocolate tea - Oolong Owl (1)

I have a bad sweet tooth. As much as I drink all this oolong and puer, I still like having tea that tastes like sweets in hope that saves me from eating a slice of cake. Maybe. Tisano sent me a bunch of their Chocolate Tea to try and their product sounded very interesting. Tisano Chocolate tea is 100% pure organic cacao shell with no flavorings – that said, a caffeine free tisane. Dry Bits I was expected a handful of cacao nibs, but instead I got these thin curls of bean. These are technically cacao shells made by some special … Continue reading, hoot!

Rosali Tea Subscription Box – Tea Review

Rosali Tea - Oolong Owl (3)

Rosali Tea is a tea of the month club / subscription box. This tea club has a quiz model, so you fill out survey and they send you a tea box to match your tastes. However, I recently got an email from them talking about the next box having Yaupon and Kenya Purple tea being included in boxes so maybe they got themes too. First off, awesome packaging! Wow, you get a box with a pull out drawer! I love this box, I will keep it and store things in it. Inside is three teas, 1oz each. I got Milk oolong, … Continue reading, hoot!

Coffee Leaf Tea, Mango and Mint from Wize Monkey

Wize Monkey Coffee Leaf Tea - mango mint - oolong owl (1)

Coffee Leaf Tea! I previously reviewed Wize Monkey’s unflavored Coffee Leaf Tea. They also did really well at the World Tea Expo 2015! Coffee Leaf Tea is quite the innovative product as it uses the leaf which can be harvested all year round vs the coffee beans’ 3 month harvest window. The tea tastes pretty good too. It appears Wize Monkey has new packaging, as well as a sample pack of their new flavors, Mango Party and Mint Marvel. The sampler pack is in a kraft bag, but the box is really well designed with lots of information about Coffee Leaf … Continue reading, hoot!

Jiaogulan Dragon Pearls from M&K’s Tea Co – Tea Review

Today’s review is a tea from a new tea seller! M&K’s Tea Co, located in California! Today is also a really neat tea review – Roasted Jiaogulan Dragon Pearls. This is a herbal caffeine free tea harvested from Pingli, Shaanxi China in 2014. I wanted to try this tea so badly – any tea rolled into pearls is an adventure to steep! The name of this tea sounds familiar to me, I’m guessing I saw this tea in the tea isle of Asian grocery stores. M&K’s Tea Co has good information on the tea, but I decided to google search it some more.  With a quick google … Continue reading, hoot!

Steep & Go Cold Brew Tea Infuser from The Tea Spot

Steep & Go - The Tea Spot - Oolong Owl Tea review (1)

Back at the World Tea Expo in 2014, I was at The Tea Spot‘s booth and they had these Steep & Go cold brew bottle adapters that were super popular! With the Steep & Go bottle adapter, you can turn your water bottle into a cold steeping tea vessel! All you need is tea, though The Tea Spot also has cold brew teas to go with it! The bottle adapter is pretty inexpensive too. The Steep & Go comes with a drink top, filter and two adapter rings. This took me awhile to get around to review as times I ended up buying … Continue reading, hoot!
