Dear Ms. Bonnie,
Little Terri wants you to be her Gramma! She wants to dress up in one of her fairie outfits & come have a tea party with you. I’d also like to have a tea party with you someday! We are both thankful for this sample of yummy tea.

This is a robust & amazing black tea with highly fragrant rose petals, safflowers (I was looking at the tea & thinking, "Is that saffron in there?), & some mystery fruit (who cares what it is, it’s delicious).
Little Terri was complaining that we’ve been drinking entirely too much ‘grown ups tea’ lately, & I realized that she was right, plus I still have lots of interesting samples to try. We were in the mood for something sweet, & this hit the spot! Plain it is good, sweetened it is phenomenal! It’s flowery & fancy enough for little T, & bold enough to satisfy me. It looks like I’ll be having a cleaning party tonight, as I can also verify that it pack a punch in the caffeine department.

You are funny Terri! I forgot to tell you that some of these Russian tea’s are the best when you put tart tablespoons of Cherry jam in the cup, stir and drink your tea and nibble some jam from the spoon. This is the way it was served to me at St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church by Fr. John.
Little Terri would like the jam!

Bonnie

Oh, I didn’t send you the other blue label Czar Nicholas. I like it the best. (You can find these big bags on Amazon. The importer is in Sacramento, CA but you can’t buy directly.

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
