That would be moi - the oolong queen! LOL
This is really the only flavored oolong I like.
Contrary to popular belief! Ha!

Well, come over sometime & we'll share some while drinking out of fabulous teaware! :wink:

Don't need a reason to visit Chicago ... the blues, the food, China town, the ethnic neighborhoods.

Forget it Tenuki, I've decided to move in with Russian Soul instead of you. RS, make up the couch and let your husband know I'll be there tomorrow night. Well, I might be willing to work out joint custody between Chicago and Seattle.

plus i know it will probably be fairly good


For that price I would suggest trying out Nara Tsukigase from lupicia. About the same price, free shipping if you hit minimum order. Although it depends on how you like your sencha. I found the daily a bit more astringent than I would like.
ah thanks for the heads up maybe i'll try both

now drinking 2007 Haiwan "9908" pu-erh nuggets :D

Resistance is futile, you will be assimilated, buy a girly teacup, kilos of OB oolong and you will love it.

Thanks! It was the first tea that wowed me when I got back into loose leaf recently. I have two different grades of first pick coming, and I'm looking to compare them to the 2007 "competition grade" I have on hand to see just how competition-worthy it actually is.

I passed over a pink t-shirt at Banana last year, and oh how I regret it.

Edit: drinking Nara sencha from pentox...a 3 sencha day. Man...I am enjoying the teaday.

This is from Lupicia. They have crazy amounts of sencha...al lot like Ito-en. I am lost even looking at either site. But I would go to one of their stores and try some anyday. None around here though.

My marine only allows 9 days a month of sleep overs, so you can just do the weekends here and everything works. :D

Yes, but it's tricky. Did anyone say 'iced tea'?
