Gahhh so hot outside! It has been pretty tolerable weather here in Long Beach – lots of nice breezes so the sun doesn’t feel so hot. However today and yesterday were kind of awful and hot. Waiting outside for the bus to go out to the DMV sucked! Ugggg. I really want some pu’er, but I cannot survive something with boiling water and a zillion infusions. With that said, I made a good green tea blend that could be iced.

Good stuff! Orange glam is a solid orange green tea – nice fresh green tea base with the orange tasting a mix of natural orange and candy like tang.
The tea has no bitterness or tart!

I can’t decide whether I like this tea hot or iced – both were good, however I much preferred it sweetened to bring out the orange flavor more. Though, iced really hit the spot today with this sticky weather.

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 / 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.

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.
