Super Starling’s Festive Favorites!

Hello, TEA-ple! Hanukkah is here, and I’m ready to make demands! You might be thinking “but Super Starling… the holidays are underway.” Don’t fret. I accept holiday gifts all year round. Here are some tea-related festive favorites: Watercolor Art Print. I love the style on this: part papercut and part watercolor. Plus, plenty of pink and purple. I’m not usually girly, but tea brings it out in me. A Cup With Feet. Admit it. You’re wondering if this is dishwasher-safe. Strap in, folks: it is.

Jin Xuan Oolong Tea in Goldfish Teabag From Charmvilla

 Our Sister’s Thoughts: Not only am I reviewing a tea but a tea product and concept with this Jin Xuan Oolong Tea in Goldfish Teabag From Charmvilla .  First I will cover the actual tea INSIDE the bag.  The Jin Xuan Oolong Tea inside this cute Goldfish Teabag is a pretty straight forward Oolong.  It’s a no-muss, no-fuss type.  It infuses to a light golden yellow.  The aroma is a weaker milky type smelling oolong.  The taste is a little creamy, a bit green, and a tad roasted.  It’s a fair tasting oolong. Personally I think the draw of this product Read More
