Okay, I decided to make my own green tea toner http://missionbeautician.blogspot.com/2011/10/diy-all-natural-green-tea-acne-toner.html
using some loose leaf gunpowder green I had laying around. I had the brilliant idea to use 3t and maybe 6oz of water to make it super concentrated. Being curious in all, I decided to sample that steep.. EWWWW BLECKBLECKBLECK! It was bitter horrible smokey cut off my tongue now taste!

I already had the kettle at the right temperature, so I decided to follow up with this tea to counter that horrible experiment. The worst part was waiting 4 minutes for it to steep! First sip was magically buttery corn sweet veg flavor, total yum! This green is fab! Yum yum!

Reminds me I am overdue for a Butiki order, once I’m done buying stuff for christmas I’ll start buying stuff for myself!

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 and knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

To contact me for reviews, check out details at OolongOwl.com/about or email me at [email protected]

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 573 Teas – August 2015.
