I’m sending good wishes for all those effected by the storm.

I started the day slowly: hot bubble bath, yoga, a walk in my garden, & a breakfast of fresh picked Chard, leftover winter squash, & 2 basted eggs. I wanted to dark tea to accompany the meal, & Zhu Rong satisfies! I brewed the first cup (1 T to 8oz water) for 2 minutes, & immediately re-steeped in a different cup for 3 minutes. Both cups are rich & flavorful (although I think next time I might to 3 min & 4). Hints of dark chocolate & spice, a little woodsy too.

I’d like to sit around drinking tea, but I’m headed out to the St. Louis Salt Room, to breath some salt & try to open up my lungs. Then I’ll run a variety of errands, before returning home to my desk work.

Wouldn’t it be great if someone would invent a kettle that can be plugged into your car, like a phone charger??

Great meal and tea! Love Zhu Rong! I’ve even mixed a little butter with a bit and poured it over squash!

Sounds like a fun day with some good food and nice tea. I haven’t tried the Verdant Zhu Rong, but I ordered it yesterday, so I’m looking forward to trying it. Your brewing information will be helpful.

I would love to spend mornings with you if they’re always like that! Such a wonderful way to start the day and a delicious sounding meal!

As LiberTEAS, I found your item on amazon as well http://www.amazon.fr/bouilloire-voiture-branchement-allume-cigare/dp/B004QNYAX0 with a French cigar plug if you come in France to drive and drink tea

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!
