Despite me doing “oolong week” at Oolong owl, I can’t drink oolongs at night – so how about banana dulce (aka Banana Coconut)?

I selected this one for the chamomile, hoping to kill off my headache. I’m kicking back, sipping tea and playing on my new Nintendo 3DS – yeah Fire Emblem! I steeped this for 7 minutes, with a vanilla bean pod for extra creamy. Very nice, slightly sweet, banana flavor!

OMG – I was eating Trader Joe’s “Go Bananas” which are frozen, chocolate covered banana slices – I need that in tea form! I was trying to find chocolate to add to this tea, but alas, I used it all recently.

i only ever had the regular DS but for me, Golden Sun was my first game, that every game after couldn’t surpass. the story was just so good!

@Shmiracles Oh god yes Golden Sun. Dark Dawn is hardcore on my list of games to play because the originals were sososososososo good. But lately I’m afraid I may never peel myself too far away from my 360.

Oooh yea, I love Golden Sun, and the sequel afterward was pretty good too, as my fav character was Felix!

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.
