I love Daiso! I’ve purchased a number of cute little tea pots and cups for cheap. Daiso is a Japanese Dollar store. I first encountered them years ago in Richmond, BC, near Vancouver. I was very happy to learn when I moved to SoCal they opened Daiso stores and they are spreading like wild fire – I got 2 stores close to me! I crashed a new one that opened nearby and they had a special display of different green tea and matcha foods. Green Tea Pastry Roll Weird warnings on package. The warnings did not lie, the pastry smelled a … Continue reading, hoot!
Last Friday while eating my lunch I was looking through ebay and showing off my finds to Chatzy tea friends and twitter. Oh man did I find weird stuff!

Poor guy, often Father’s Day is in the June 20s so he gets stuck with the same double duty gift! I don’t think my dad really reads Oolong Owl, but that is okay he has an excuse. My dad is legally blind so he’s not that computer friendly. He can somewhat get by with a iPad, mostly for email, taking photos, playing games and watching videos I send him.

Welcome to the first installment of Oolong Owl’s “Sunday Tea Hoots”. Sunday Tea Hoots is about Oolong Owl life randomness related to tea! Tea Drunk Yoga I’ve been dabbling in Yoga on and off for years. This year I’ve been really pushing to re-composition my body as married life has led me to enjoy baking and eating a little too much. I am doing a bunch of stuff with success, but that could be another Sunday Tea Hoot. To do a bit more, I decided to do Yoga more regularly. I’m on a 30 day yoga challenge, which I’ve almost completed (eehhh … Continue reading, hoot!
