The Chocolate midnight is done. I just finished making lemon curd (that stuff is crack!) for the lemon squares. I’m sipping sparkling water with meyer lemon pulp in it, and it rocks.

I’m also sipping this wonderful Shu, gongfu style. I love this one, and so far no 3rd eye headache or sensations of hallucinogenic shroom trippin’ or anything. I’m glad this one doesn’t effect me that way, as I just ordered more of it recently…along with a few other things… sorry Nik, I’ve been sneaking around behind your back ordering more tea ;)

This is the first time I made lemon squares ,Bonnie, i ate one, and they turned out great! I am the family pastry chef, which is crazy cuz I can’t eat much in the way of sweets.
Mathis, thank! If you’re ever in St. Louis, you’ll have to come by and let me feed you.

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!
