I’m heading out into another drizzly damp day to visit with the midwife who attended the births of my first 3 children (I had another lady at the birth of the 4th child. They were all born at home).

Anyway, I hadn’t seen her for years, & we recently reconnected, & in our mutually busy lives we’ve finally found a day in which we can spend the afternoon, reminiscing about births, gardening, tea, our children & grandchildren, & whatever else.

This dampness is rough on my lungs, so a spicy gingery brew is required for going outside, & this is the one!

Day with a dear friend trumps the tea, no matter how good it is :)

It was a wonderful visit! She is one of the women who basically ‘raised’ me when I was in my 20’s. I lived in Rolla, MO at the time, & there was an amazing network of women there that I am so grateful to have been a part of. We sang together, birthed our babies at home, & had lovely get togethers that always included lots of delicious food. She recently moved to St. Louis, & just by chance (I say that, be we know there are no coincidences) I ran into her at a local holistic health expo event I was playing at (some would call it a psychic fair), I heard a familiar voice say, “I know you.” and there she was!

Awesome how you reconnected. Also, this brew sounds pretty good.

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!
