Drinking the last tea bag of this yay!

And oversteeping it as I have no where to put the tea bag! I’d have to go downstairs and fetch a saucer and I’m too lazy right now. I thought I had a saucer up here for emergencys like today.
Now I’m starting to think this kickstarter is a good idea http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/klip/klip-ditch-that-saucer-and-sip-as-you-brew?ref=live
Though, I’ve been doing in mug steeping because I’m out a 2 cup teapot. Maybe I should get just a freaking new tea pot.

Flavor? Actually not going bitter that fast and the coconut flavor is getting stronger. End of the cup the tea is starting too pungent for my liking.

Preparation
160 °F / 71 °C 8 min or more

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
