Tea number 2 from the Verdant Tea of the Month Club:

This is a tea that I’m not new to, & it is one that I have already been enjoying since I placed my first Verdant order (which was really just about 6 weeks ago, can you believe that? I’m not going to confess to how many orders I’ve placed since then…LOL).

I love the deep chocolate boldness, & this is another strongly grounding tea, I feel like it is made of the roots of trees, deep in the earth. There is a hint of a burdock root flavor, a spiciness of clove, and my beloved sweet potato. Definitely a noticeable contrast from the Tian Di Ren ’06 Sheng, this is a much bolder cup, with a thickness to it.

Now I’m headed down to Perryville (90 miles or do drive) to play a wedding!

If I were you, I’d need a great tea thermos, a non-spill cup and a custom tea-bib to keep my clothes clean while driving down the roads to the performance. I’m a terrible dribbler! Usually I use a straw in every beverage cup because I miss my mouth too often when driving and plop tea down my chin onto my ‘shelf’.

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!
