Getting ready to head out the door to play an early morning gig, with a cup of this in hand. I love the body of it, the depth: malt, a little chocolate, spice. A morning cup to enhance my playing, & I’m gonna need a little enhancement, as I bumped my middle finger yesterday (right before my gig) and split the nail, painfully peeling it back a bit. I trimmed it as far back as I could, but it kept catching on a string & ouch! I had a few bandaids in my purse, but they don’t stand up to harp playing very well, so neither lasted very long.

I have a 2 hour gig this morning, & a rehearsal tonight. I have a roll of white bandage tape in my purse, the finger is wrapped to protect the nail, & although it’s throbbing, “the show must go on!”

Ouch, that sounds awful. Good luck with your gig, I hope its not too painful.

It is one of the difficulties of being a musician, any little cut is a major ordeal.

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!
