Sip down! Yeh!!!

Had a weird day so far. After my first cup of tea, I was about to make something stronger, but I had to go out for lunch. Had sushi and drank some genmaicha that was more rice and popcorn than tea. Finally home for a bit to have tea! yay!

Nice, tangy strawberry and creamy tea! yum! Now off to get ready for jiujitsu – there’s a special memorial and open mat tonight, as one of our black belts passed away last week.

Hmmmmm, I’m looking for a good strawberry tea.

This one is good and so is Lupicia’s Strawberry and Vanilla. Lupicia’s Champagne Rose is also another good one. Those 3 are all pretty candy tasting. A good less candy tasting strawberry would be Butiki’s Strawberry Oolong.

Thanks! I have yet to try a Lupicia order! Might be soon.

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 / 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
DAVIDsTea
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.

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