First, my apologies for my crabby note earlier! But I also want to say that Momo would be proud of me if she saw me zipping up that right hand lane when everyone else managed to move over & there was a quarter mile open until the lane ended! That probably saved me another 15 – 20 minutes of wait time!

I drank this Tuo Cha much earlier in the day, right after my cup of english breakfast. The only word I can use to describe it was Smooth! It will show up in a future review, & I suspect that it’s a tasty one. I didn’t detect any saltiness, just a very smooth earthy feel, which is what I wanted.

One interesting aspect of being sick & not being able to taste & smell is that it brings the focus more to mouth feel, kind of like the way being blind brings the focus more to the other senses, only obviously, not really the same thing at all, but I’m sure you get the idea. In some ways, I’d like to sample some of the really awesome teas, the ones with tingly & creamy characteristics, just to see how much more noticeable they’d be. But, that’s probably just feverish folly!

Hahaha I am very proud of you!

Aww, are you sick too? >: Seems to just be that time of year.
I know what you mean about mouthfeel though; it’s so much more pronounced when the flavor isn’t distracting from it.

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!
