Celebration Tea!

So, I moved to the US from Canada in early 2012 on a fiance visa and married to my cute, yet tea hating software engineer husband. I have been stuck in the US waiting for my greencard application to be approved for 10 months on something that should of taken around 4 months, despite me and my immigration lawyer pestering them and about to get our congress person involved.
Finally, I got notice today that I’ve been approved! Yes, now my husband and I can plan our honeymoon since now I can leave the US without any issues!

Time to have my favorite tea! Mmmmm watermelon! I added a little german rock sugar for extra watermelon sweetness! Ohhh yeah! This tea is fantastic! I don’t care that it’s hot tea on a hot summer day. Butiki Tea sale tomorrow too!

185 °F / 85 °C 4 min, 30 sec

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
Verdant Tea
Yunnan Sourcing
52 Teas / Zoomdweebies
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.
