Celebration Tea!

So, I moved to the US from Canada in early 2012 on a fiance visa and married to my cute, yet tea hating software engineer husband. I have been stuck in the US waiting for my greencard application to be approved for 10 months on something that should of taken around 4 months, despite me and my immigration lawyer pestering them and about to get our congress person involved.
Finally, I got notice today that I’ve been approved! Yes, now my husband and I can plan our honeymoon since now I can leave the US without any issues!

Time to have my favorite tea! Mmmmm watermelon! I added a little german rock sugar for extra watermelon sweetness! Ohhh yeah! This tea is fantastic! I don’t care that it’s hot tea on a hot summer day. Butiki Tea sale tomorrow too!

185 °F / 85 °C 4 min, 30 sec

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.
