drank Coconut Oolong by Zen Tea
932 tasting notes

Yes, Zen Tea’s Coconut Oolong – we are together again! I could not resist adding you to my cart.

I dig the floral and the sweet coconuttyness in this tea! The oolong here is fantastic as well! YUM!

And I drank my entire pot really fast while I was working on my crochet blog and pattern sales.

those are super cute! I like the big eyes! I’ve done 1 knitted toy, a penguin off knitty, it didn’t come out so well. I haven’t mastered doing a tight gauge with knitting that I can pull off with crochet

Starfevre

Do you do cats?

Cavocorax

I love those! I should learn crochet! :o

Dinosara

Ah owls, so cute! Stephanie: did you make the pattern for those owls?

Tealizzy

So cute!!

Stephanie

Dinosara, yeah, I made up the owls! Never really wrote out a proper patter though. They sold well, but I just couldn’t get enough money for them to make it worth the time I put into them. They took 45 mins to make EACH plus materials and I couldn’t charge more than $5 each really because of how small they are!

Awkward Soul

@ starfevre – not yet, but I could probably modify one of my patterns to make a cat. On my list for patterns to create is a cat, though it has 6 legs or something (a D&D thing)

Profile

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
