Back logg’n

I had a crazy week with etsy related stuff – I came out with a new owl crochet pattern, which took up most of my week of writing, taking photos of owls, answering emails and repeated trips to the post office. Arg.

So, I forgot to tea log this. Orange Brulee is very candy like – the orange is sweet and strong, with savory caramel and creamy flavor! Bit grassy at times too. I got a solid resteep and probably could of gotten another one.

I found this tea pretty sweet – I like to try a new tea once with sweetner, but Orange Brulee was already pretty sweet!

I love how strong and full flavored this tea is. Also amazing how DTT got the orange, caramel and cream to come out. However, as much as I like candy like teas, this was pushing the sweetness level for me – so I can see myself saving this tea for super sugar cravings.

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
