Life has just been busy and crazy. So, last weekend when my husband rescued that turtle, we went to the hardware store to get a pond setup. We found out the hardware store was going out of business, so we came home with a new refridgerator and deepfreeze that were like 65% off!

This weekend we got the fridge into the house andddd I now have filtered water and ice! I’ve been slaving with brita pitchers and icecube trays. Took 24 hours to get ice, and I had to make an iced tea – how about tamarind pop! I haven’t had it in awhile!

Very tasty! Caramelly, spicey, sweet and a nice black tea base. Well, I made some bibimnaengmyeon (korean spicey cold noodles) for lunch so I only got to enjoy this ice tea at the beginning until I lost my mouth to super spicy heat.

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 and knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

To contact me for reviews, check out details at OolongOwl.com/about or email me at [email protected]

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 573 Teas – August 2015.
