drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea
2945 tasting notes

Yesterday I had a wonderful pajama day, no gigs anywhere, no students, just me, Tony, tea, & relaxation. We sampled the Exotic Pear (Butiki), but I didn’t write a review on it. That’s a tea I’ll have to drink a few times before I have anything to say.

I have a gig today at a retirement home. I’ll be playing for their Holiday Open House. I started the morning with an English Breakfast (Adagio), and now I’m doing Gaiwan steepings of Laoshan Black.
5G + 4oz (quick rinse) = one of the best teas ever!

I’ve reviewed this tea several times, as have many others, & if you are one of the few who hasn’t tried it, you’re missing out!

I had a pj day on Friday, & by pjs I mean black sweat pants & the chic version of a wife-beater shirt, only black with some lace around the neck & armpits, & my beloved red cashmere sweater with holes in it. I taught 2 adult students in this ensemble, went to the bank, met people at the coffee shop for tea, and spent the rest of my time hanging out at home, drinking tea. I looked like crap, & I didn’t care. :D

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!
