I’m working on blog stuff woot! I’m moving Oolong Owl from wordpress.com (freebie blogging site) to my own website with tons more control, space and freedom.

I made a pot of this black, as it’s a pretty good black (in my limited experience in unflavored blacks) and I was expecting I’d need a boost in caffeine in case of explosions. There was a few explosions – pictures went missing, then lost posts. Then I got it all back. Then I discovered I need to download plugins because everything looks like crap. Then weeding through plugins that won’t work, are too crazy, or want money.
The NECL was good, crisp, earthy and got cold fast – I also mostly mindlessly sipped away all the tea while I worked.

More fun was my host providered called me to say hello and upsell crap. He asked, “so, what is your website?” I’m “Lots of tea. And crocheted owls trying to steal my tea.” Kind of blew his mind there.

edit: I think I drank too much (plus I don’t often drink this much black tea) I’m freaking jittering all over the place! OOOh yeah!


I’m cracking up picturing the host caller’s face! :-)

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.
