Oolong Owl’s World Tea Expo 2015 Haul

Oolong Owl invades the World Tea Expo 2015 Read Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3 Here it is, my haul from the World Tea Expo 2015! Admittedly, it is hard to purchase things for just yourself at the World Tea Expo as many are sold as wholesale, or they just had one or two items as demo. I purchased a bunch of tea books – I learned from last year that the books will disappear. Cook books were of interest to me, my husband and I buy (and receive) lots of cookbooks. I purchased 3 cook books – Tastefully Small Savory … Continue reading, hoot!

World Tea Expo 2015 – Day 3

Oolong Owl invades the World Tea Expo 2015 Read Day 1 | Day 2 | Haul The final day of the World Tea Expo 2015! I’m tired! So much walking, carrying lots of packages/tea owls/camera stuff as well as tea binging and crashing. The caffeine crashes being the worst. I actually didn’t have much to do today – I had seen almost all the booths so all I had on the quest list is to hit a few booths I missed, The Finest Brew (again) and purchase some tea cups. As a surprise, my husband stuffed the giant Hell Hoot into my camera … Continue reading, hoot!

Oolong Owl at World Tea Expo 2015 – Day 1

Oolong Owl invades the World Tea Expo 2015 Read Day 2 | Day 3 | Haul It was a mysteriously cool day here in Long Beach for Day 1 of the World Tea Expo. I rolled in downtown Long Beach looking for some hot tea! On the schedule today: I got just under half of all the booths checked out, which was a pretty good track record compared to last year. The catch this year is many of the booths now have scheduled tasting – either certain times of day they’ll steep up different teas to compare, or they only made … Continue reading, hoot!

Oolong Owl at the World Tea Expo – Day 3! Read Day 1! | Read Day 2! World Tea Expo Day 3! It was a short day at the World Tea Expo, lasting till 4pm. The floor wasn’t as crowded, however there was a sense of hectic buying frenzy in the air – tea buyers making final decisions and swamping popular booths. People felt tired with 2 full days of standing yet still loaded on tea caffeine. I tied up some loose ends and spent most of the day seeing the special events at the World Tea Expo, which I found to be rewarding. I … Continue reading, hoot!
