drank Tamarind Pop by Butiki Teas
932 tasting notes

So much canning done!

First: picked lots of pomegranates, like 15 or 20. Then I took the seeds out, blended and separated into juice, about 10 cups. Then I turned it into jelly and canned them. Turned out fantastic again!

After that, blubarb jam – so had to cook down some rhubarb and mixed it with fresh blueberries and turned it into jam and canned that.

Then bleach down the giant mess made, pomegranate splotches everywhere! I probably need to do more watermelon jelly, but after that I’ll be done the canning (and xmas presents sans the wine jellies planned for the when next 5cent Bevmo sale)

After all that, need a big glass of iced tea – tamarind pop! Very tasty, I added some light agave for sweetness. Flavor is great, as always – little tarty tamarind candy and a slight caramel like taste at the end.
Time to relax and knit!

watermelon jelly??!! :o Oh my word that sounds delightful.

Sweet! After canning, I’m too tired to even boil water for a cup of tea. That watermelon jelly sounds divine.

OMGsrsly

Watermelon jelly?! I’m so jealous of your pomegranate trees. Pomegranate jelly sounds fantastic. :)

Stephanie

Yay canning! If you have leftover watermelon, look up Alton Browns watermelon sorbet recipe. It’s super good!

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
