November White2tea Club 2015 Pin – Tea Review

2015 Pin Sheng - White2tea - Oolong Owl Tea Review (1)

I’ve been with the White2Tea Club monthly subscription tea box thing for a year now. At $30 a month, add up how much of my monies have been funneled into White2Tea for a year, and I’m still signed up as I love this tea club. If I cut myself off I think I’ll get the tea bends or something. November 2015’s White2Tea Club is the lovely 200 gram cake of 2015 Pin Sheng. For a $30 a month price, getting a $49 cake is a great deal for something I would of purchased it eventually. $49 cake is in my price range of … Continue reading, hoot!

October White2tea club – Tea Review

October White2Tea Club - Oolong Owl (10)

Yeah October White2Tea Club time! I got at my monthly tea clubs late since I was out of town for the beginning of the month. This month is an interesting mix of teas – 2006 Gongting Shou 100 gram cake, two 9 gram 2013 Lincang Area sheng orbs, and a ripe pu’er stuffed in a tangerine.

Of the club teas this month, the 2006 Gongting shou 100 gram cake is available for purchase. Club members … Continue reading, hoot!

White2tea club september - Qilan Oolong - Oolong Owl (6)

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!

August White2Tea Club Dahongpao clover oolong - Oolong Owl (8)

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!

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!

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!
