Gah, just one serving left after this one! Where’d all the tea go?

Candy tea, yay! Spent most the day sewing on owl feet and working on the tea blog. Now making artichokes for dinner, which I can’t stand. I hate preparing them and while I find they taste good, I dislike the effort required to eat them. Also a pain as it’s 31c / 90F outside, so the house is hot and hanging out next the artichokes boiling away sucks. Having Yaya Strawberry iced to keep cool.

I only ever make big artichokes when I’m craving garlic butter. There are teensy artichokes available locally, but I’ve never tried cooking with them. They’re soft, and I think you can eat the whole thing.

I always wanted to try those little artichokes – I only seen them once at a local farmers market and they were very expensive! Like $4 each expensive.

OMGsrsly

Oh, wow. They’re rather cheap here. I’ll have to get some the next time I see them, just to see what they’re like!

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
