What, I thought this was a sip down, but I still have another run with this tea!

I enjoy this tea steeped via gaiwan – Spring Twist has a nice vegetal green bean flavor with smooth butteryness. I got 4 gaiwain runs, and once I finish this last run, I will make frozen perogies, which I haven’t had since I left Canada. Not sure why, but they were a pain to find here – whereas back home in Canada they are in every grocery store. That and when I’d ask other americans here they have no clue what I’m talking about! PFFF.

Perogies are in all the grocery stores around here, but until I moved to NJ I’d never heard of them.

I love Perogies! I have made my own, but I know Schwans carries frozen ones.

I think I’m going to make my own and freeze them. The ones tonight weren’t that great and that’s the only brand I can find in my area. Perogies are awesome, not sure why they aren’t popular where I live.

Love pierogies! My grandmother would make them from scratch when I was very young. I found some fantastic ones at Whole Foods. I think they are from a local-ish company that makes them homemade with no preservatives. So good and they are vegan.

Perogies!! I love them. They are a pain to make though. So my cousins and I get together and make a huge batch occasionally.

Lol – thanks to you and all the comments, I am having perogies for supper tonight! They are definitely quite popular in Canada, you’re right!

Bio

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.
