Gah, everywhere I look, there’s samples that I need to sip down!

Time to work on this one! Ah, I didn’t realize this one was a sheng. I read http://www.teavivre.com/info/pu-erh-tea-weight-loss/ that you drink a pu’er after a meal it helps with weightloss. I need all the help I can get, along with all this crazy freaking exercise I do. Hopefully I burn my energy at brazilian jiu jitsu tonight – I never go thursdays. Something about “MMA/boxing gloves punching while jiujitsu neutralizing attacks” seems too scary for me. But I have to go, or I’ll never get a belt promotion. My plan? Hyper Pu’er energy + rolling up into a ball + spazzing out into leg attacking. Yeah, MMA isn’t my future career…

Screw the large bags plus I bet it’s plastic like other “silk” bags. So far so good. I wish there was more interest to this pu’er – it seems like this one very tea noob friendly, so no fishy or thick taste. Just earthy. No creamy, floral, nuttyness going on.

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 / knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

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
White 2 Tea
Steep City Teas
Verdant Tea
Yunnan Sourcing
52 Teas / Zoomdweebies
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.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 512 Teas May 2015.
