MmmMMmmm mushy cooked rhubarb tea. So delicious!
Uggg, I feel asif my fingertips have been sanded off from yarn. I’ve been crocheting all the time over the holiday weekend. The inlaws dropped that I should crochet a couple things for gifts to be mailed to family. At the same time, I got commissions coming in that need to be done for christmas. Waaah, busy time! Now that my hands had enough crocheting for the night, time to relax with some good tea.
Man, gravity hates this rooibos. The lighter petally bits keep floating to the top in the bag.

You have my sympathies for your poor hands! I’ve had to start wearing a thermoskin glove to help my sore wrist when I’m not crocheting, but no matter what I do for my hands they feel dry and unhappy.

I usually put on hand lotion when I crochet, but I’m crocheting with white yarn and I’m a little paranoid I’ll stain the yarn. I put treatment hand lotion/cuticle balm on last night, but that didn’t help the acrylic yarn rubbed fingers.

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 and knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

To contact me for reviews, check out details at OolongOwl.com/about or email me at [email protected]

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 573 Teas – August 2015.
