Uggg, it was sooo hot here last night! I barely slept! It looks like it is going to be another really hot day today too!

You know what is really weird? I’ve lived in Long Beach for just over a year. Before moving here, I visited a couple times a year. During all this time, I have not been to a beach here. Blows my family/friends’ minds! I’m more of a museum and farmers market person. Feels like a good beach day today though!

So, I was hoping this tea would be refreshingly cool and ease some tummy funkyness. I steeped up some of this Ginger Zinger, to hopefully help out. Mmmm, very refreshing peachy orange with ginger for pep! Nice and cooling too, as I finished my lukewarm cup. Yum!

So jealous that you live near the beach! I’m also in CA, the bay, but I have to drive to Santa Cruz if I want a nice beach day. Cold-brewed tea to be enjoyed by the waves sounds like heaven… I hope you go!

At least you aren’t landlocked in Indiana! Boooo! I have to drive 10 hours to get to any legit beach!

lol! NYC people don’t usually go the beach either and we’re on the ocean!

Stephanie, I used to be a Midwestern girl! Now I’m all about the West Coast — the winters here are so easy.

As for NYC people, I don’t understand: I would be craving nature and the ocean if I lived there. Of course, you have parks, right? To be honest, I’ve never been!

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.
