drank Gooey Butter Cake by 52teas
2955 tasting notes

My daughter Arianna & I are having breakfast & I let her pick out some of the teas that we’re drinking. Here are her comments regarding this tea:

“It’s flippin’ tasTea! (she told me to spell it that way), coming off first as light and lemony, with a smooth buttery finish”.

Wow your daughter is quite the tea critic – and tea punner, as well. How old is she?

Arianna is 26, my hippie girl, a little tongue in cheeky, and I guess it comes from being raised in a tea drinking house, right? My other daughter, Jessica, is 29, and strictly a coffee drinker, LOL! Both of my sons (Drew 23, and Leif 20) are tea drinkers.

My oldest is 20, and she didn’t start drinking teas much until she was about 16 or 17, until that time, she “hated” tea which I think was more about rebelling against mom than anything else. Now, she drinks tea on occasion but doesn’t want caffeine, so she pretty much sticks with peppermint herbals. During her last year of cosmetology school, she would start every morning off with some Honeybush, she loved Frank’s Honeybush selections, her favorites were the Coconut Cheesecake Honeybush and the Banana Honeybush.

Yeah, LOL, I think Jess’ coffee drinking started out as rebellion. She was also a prep for awhile, my exact opposite. She let go of that & his more hippy-ish like me now.

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!
