My fingers are pruney and sore! I was blocking a shawl I knitted not too long ago – for non knitters, you block by soaking your wool/plant based item and pin it down tightly into shape. This shapes the item and in my case, opens up the lacework to look fantastic.
This blasted shawl sprials in its self, plus every ruffle section I do once I go to the next ruffle, it causes slack in the previous ruffle, so I have to go back and repin. Not to mention fix pins that popped out.

Over 45 minutes later, I’m done. Blocking is usually not this terrible, but this shawl is just simply a nightmare. More sad is I could of done a better job with blocking, but it is really confusing with pins everywhere. I also silently wept inside knowing I planned to make another one after I’m done the current one I’m knitting.

If it wasn’t for this matcha, I probably wouldn’t have the energy to do it. I simply dumped a teaspoon in a tumbler full of ice and a little water and sipped away while I worked – kaimatcha is just go crisp, clean, high quality, vibrant green and flavorful matcha. Don’t let the infomerical website fool you.

You are quite right! The slick look is very reminiscent of an infomercial but this is probably the best, highest quality matcha I have ever tasted, and the price is reasonable for the high quality you get.

Profile

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
