80

I had this tea in my travel mug today.

I went on a drive to a few cities over to a “create your own lotion/bath stuff” kind of place. It was pretty funky as you can combine the essential oils they had to scent your lotion. I ended up doing one tea inspired scent for body lotion “Strawberry, Cucumber Melon, Honeydew” and a salt scrub that was rosemary, peppermint, eucalyptus. I tried doing a Moroccan mint and failed.

Anyways, this tea in a tumbler.. BLECK! Just did not work. At first, it was fine on the drive to shopping, though despite looking fantastic in my tumbler, the floral got too strong and soapy for me. I had to dump it out and drink some raspberry iced tea stuff during lunch.

Lesson: do not oversteep 8TY.

Oooo! I love rosemary mint scented bath things.

Wooooo, that bath place sounds like fun. I would love to make my own lotion and bath salts.

Yeah 8TY should not be brewed over 2:30 min at max. Any over and it gets weird.

the bath place was super fun, easy to get into trouble – luckily just $45 damage. You can get so many things like shampoo, face stuff, creams, masks, room sprays.. and yeah, sitting down making your own fragrance was the best part.

Ooh, was it Sinfulicious? I was at the San Diego location a few weeks ago! Lots of fun! I ended up with a guava, grapefruit, and vanilla salt scrub and oil! Smells like candy!!

I went to The Bath Workshop, though googling Sinfulicious, it’s very similar – and ooh, not too bad of a drive for me too. I need more customized bath products in my life!

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
