ICED TEA MODE!

I just spent 40 freaking minutes stirring a dark roux for gumbo and managed to burn my finger in the process – note to self and others, roux gets VERY hot, do not try to taste test it with finger out of pan!

With that said, I needed a cup of tea (when do I not need a cup of tea?) right now, but not hot and I didn’t have any cold steeping action going on in the fridge.

I steeped 2t of Southern Belle with half the hot water I normally use, 4 lumps of rock sugar. Poured over a glass of ice.

MAGICAL! Creamy, peachy black tea…. though she’s not as pretty of a cup of tea with all the white speckles that were once yogurt drops.

it’s a black tea with peaches, yogurt drops and stevia. It’s slightly sweet, peachy and very creamy. It’s an online exclusive unfortunately.

I love gumbo too! Pain in the butt to make but worth it!

Bio

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk. I am also a crochet / knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 512 Teas May 2015.
