90

What, I’m still sick? I was feeling okay over the weekend, as long as I had water or tea with me and I didn’t get dehydrated.
I went to jiujitsu and did fine, and I wake up today in total throat sinus meltdown.
With that said, another pu’er day! My shu pu’er yixing pot is getting lots of use these days!

As always, a fine pu’er with some interesting sweet notes. I’m eating some caramel mousse greek yogurt (so good!) which pairs amazingly with the tea.

If he was alive today, it’s Helio Gracie’s 100th birthday (one of the founders of brazilian jiujitsu) and grandfather to my instructors at my school. It’s going to be 100 minutes of sparring tonight, and I really want to go, so I need to be in good health. More pu’er!

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.
