I had no internet all yesterday (thanks verizon) and finally have it back! I can tealog again! I did brazilian jiu jitsu last night and then this morning. Why don’t I just sleep at the gym? I was gone for less than 10 hours.
Anyways, I have an event to go to tonight which will have lots of delicious goodies, so I went to jitz to prepare of the mass amounts of calories I will go crazy on. However, I was dead tired this morning and I needed something to wake me up so I don’t look silly yawning during class while someone is choking me.
The kaimatcha, man, this stuff is good. This got me squeaky perky after a big frothy mug of it, simulating me as a “energetic morning person” when I’m a “don’t talk to me until I’ve had 2 cups of tea and after 10am” person. So buttery, fresh and easy to mix!

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.
