Normally when I see oolong teas with vague names, I pay them no mind. That’s because I don’t usually love oolongs so unless something else catches my eye, I just keep browsing. Luckily I have the sororitea sisters to talk teas with and when I read or hear a rave review, it gets me intrigued…oolong or not. When it came to this tea, CuppaGeek mentioned it was one I just had to get when placing an A Quarter to Tea order and she was certainly right.
One sip. One sip is all it took to get me hooked. In fact, I had a quick cup of this a week ago and have been thinking about it since. So, I couldn’t put it off anymore and got to brewing up another mug of this oolong deliciousness.
This is one of the few teas that promises cheesecake and actually delivers. A slight and familiar cream cheese tang. All atop an incredibly creamy flavor. There is also a honey sweetness drizzled in the mix. All this tastiness and yet the oolong is still present. However, in this case I think it is helping create the overall cheesecake flavor, floral yet sweet. No roastiness. No vegetal flavors. No artificial notes. Just a whole lot of good.
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Oolong
Where to Buy: A Quarter To Tea
A sweet and creamy jade oolong with sweet honey and cheesecake flavors and cow sprinkles straight from the dairy state.

Enter Steepster.com. This is where I met some incredible tea friends, discovered tea swaps, and learned of so many amazing tea companies. My desire to try all the teas grew and since joining three years ago I have tried over a thousand different teas. I have learned what ingredients I love and I have learned what flavors I don’t like. I determined my go-to brewing method is Western-style with no added milk or sweeteners, though I also enjoy cold brewing, iced teas, teapops, lattes, and smoothies. I have yet to brew gong-fu style but I hope to do so just as soon as I get the proper teaware to do it.
About a year ago, I actually stopped drinking tea but as my stash of over 200 teas started aging I decided I needed to respark my interest. I chose to take a 365 days of tea challenge on Instagram in which I post a new tea picture every day. So far it has been rather successful as I find myself drinking (and buying) more and more tea each day. Plus it enabled CuppaGeek to find me and invite me here to SororiTea Sisters.
