Sip down!

Peach Oolong came out nice and buttery for me today, perfect for the raging creamy tooth I have going this morning. Once I’m done this, I’m going in for a resteep.

haha, reading my previous notes on this tea I talk about canning peaches – funny now as I finally made canning a reality for me to do. Well, my husband did, he bought me a pressure canner, jars and tools. last weekend I did nectarine preserves (like a super chunky jam) and vanilla maple nectarine jam. Today I need to prepare for buying a ton of tomatoes and pineapple tonight, which I will can over the weekend.

Wow…Vanilla Maple Nectarine Jam!? Thats sounds absolutely delish.
I can fruit every year…maybe I should start getting more adventuresome in what I put up.
A Peach Oolong sounds delish too, perfect for this time of the summer where all the Peaches are coming on:)

I used the Ponoma pectin, which makes it really easy to use whatever kind (and any amount) of sweetner – I got the recipe out of their cookbook, which has some pretty wild jams. The blubarb jam is amazing! http://www.amazon.com/Preserving-Pomonas-Pectin-Revolutionary-High-Flavor/dp/1592335594

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
