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.

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.
