OMG exploding! SOOO MUCH FOOD for Canadian Thanksgiving extravaganza. I’m so happy my friends put so much effort (and food) to celebrate it here in the US. Feels like better timing for me than American Thanksgiving.

The food: 26lb smoked turkey, muffings (stuffing made in muffin tins, roasted potatoes, gravy, pomegranate jelly, creamed spinach, amazing asparagus big coucous salad, a whole roasted pork loin, macaroni and cheese made with an entire giant brick of cheese, blue cheese stuff bacon wrapped dates, homemade bread, pumpkin pie spiced fudge and nanaimo bars. So much food for 9 people, though a couple of my husband’s friends ate like 2 full plates of food.

After eating all that, then cleaning up, I curled up with a big tumbler of Blushing Geisha iced and Pokemon X. It was really refreshing and a nice tea to end the day with.
See previous notes or my Oolong Owl post http://oolongowl.com/blushing-geisha-from-steep-city-teas/ for review of this tea.

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
