BACKLOGGING MODE!

So, I steeped up a small pot of this to drink while I work on my knitted shawl of doom last night. However, I cheaped out on the leaves so it was a little weak. With less leaves it wasn’t as melony, but still good. Before bed I was planning on drinking out of a huge pile of rooibos teas I haven’t tried and couldn’t bear to toss out WMX’s leaves, so I did a resteep with much less water. Still delicious!

I guess I need to order more, YAY!

I did let the tea hating husband try WMX. He was like “it’s sweet and then it tastes like tea.” thus, he didn’t like it. I’m sad as I thought he’d like this tea (and I’d love to find a tea he likes) but happy at the same time because it’s MOAR TEA FOR MEEEEE!

I must know, what does a “shawl of doom” look like? Bummer about the hubby not liking tea. There has to be something he likes. FYI, WMX is going on sale very soon.

lol, shawl of doom….I had a blanket of doom last year that I made for our good friends’ wedding….but it took FOREVER!

On sale!!! I might have to buy this!

Awkward Soul / Oolong Owl

gasp, on sale!! Ooooh! That means I should really try the samples I have from you in case I need to order out of those too!

The shawl of doom is http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/cloud-illusions and I thought I could have it done by April for my civil ceremony wedding, but barely got halfway. Now I’m hoping for October for when I have my wedding celebration with family. I’m a fast lace knitter, but this beast of a shawl is taking forever! Dreading when I get to the beading /cry

Butiki Teas

Love the style. Good luck, I hope you get it done in time for your celebration.

Well, don’t worry the sale will be a month long so you have some time for sample tasting.

Bio

I’m a crafty knitter and crocheter that loves to work on a project and drink tea. I worked as a counsellor and I chain-drink tea to keep me calm and grounded.

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 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.
My recommended tea shops:
Mandala Tea
Steep City Teas
Butiki Teas
DAVIDsTea
Della Terra Teas
Lupicia
Verdant Tea
Yunnan Sourcing
52 Teas / Zoomdweebies
Yunomi.us
Red Leaf Tea
New Mexico Tea Co
Bluebird Tea Co
The Persimmon Tree

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

I have a husband and a bunny who both hate tea. More for me!!!! MUUAHAHAHAHAAA
