I had one of those weird “tea fanatic” experiences this morning. 2 servings of this tea, Eight Candles, left. Do I sip down, when I truly need to get my tea stash under control, or squirrel away a serving for later, cuz I like this tea.

Sigh. My stash insanity won, so sip down it is!

8 Candles came out kind of graham cracker sweet for me today. actually really sweet, since it was the bottom of the package, which was more loaded with sugary bits than usual. Pretty good and s’more like, but with caramel.

(see previous notes for review)

Rosehips

I had exactly this experience this morning with two beloved teas, which are now gone (one forever, I expect.) but its time to control that stash!

Cavocorax

I’ve been there, and I understand the appeal of saving that one last cup, but OTOH, if you save it you risk it getting stale. Why not enjoy it now while it’s still really enjoyable?

At least, that’s what I tell myself.

Della Terra Teas

This tea will be coming back out this Holiday season :)

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
