Bleh, having a slow day with emails piling up and crochet bits of owls I need to stitch together. I didn’t nearly drink enough tea today, but my thighs are dying!
I did the “Call Me Maybe Squat Challenge” http://youtu.be/xDpB8pWEjhk which I survived! I died at the end and was like “omg, no more” and realized it was done! WOOT!! Take that squat challenge! A overweight, though burly brazilian jiu jitsu gal finished it first try! Oww my thighs!

So, iced tea? Okay – Wild Watermelon iced is MUCH better! I added german rock sugar and a teeny bit of light agave for sweetness. You know, this tastes like a watermelon jolly rancher! Actually, I like this better than a watermelon jolly rancher!

ps. Being a tea fanatic – I was eyeing the giant tea cup in the background of that workout video the entire time! OMG I want!

I should try the last I have like this. Did you cold-brew or just ice?

iced, I just steeped it strong (212F for 4.5 minutes) and topped it with lots of ice.

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 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.
