We meet again Three Wishes, for one last cup in my stash!
This time I went really conservative, 2.5 mins, 175f. Much much better!

Very floral, peachy with depth of the black tea. The black tea isn’t getting bitter here. Not sure why DT had the steeping times so nutty – sometimes I think they just stamp 98c for 4-7 for most teas.

Three wishes?
1. Never get injuries in jiu jitsu or weight lifting again
2. Always get the perfect cup of tea
3. Free tickets to all the concerts – pfpfffff $200+ to see BIGBANG tomorrow? I’ll just admire GD from afar on youtube for free http://youtu.be/6IHq9yv_qis

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 30 sec

I think my concert-related wish would be for more bands to make stops in my city.

But $200 is ridiculous. I’m glad most of the bands I listen to don’t charge that much.

Mélissa

Injuries while lifting = tiger balm. ouch.

Me and tigerbalm are good friends. Epsom salt is another close friend.

Calla

this is one of my fave teas

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.
