Home from my gig, feeling a little drained, I made a quick lunch stir fry of chicken, bok choi, spring onions, ginger, garlic, toasted sesame oil & fish sauce. My home-made Kimchi & Sauer Kraut are both bubbling nicely, and the Kimchi will be ready tomorrow! So I polished off the last of the jar of Kimchi that was in the frig, drinking the juices that remained in the jar. It was a tasty lunch, & the only tea that felt appropriate was Matcha. Creamy, dreamy, & Green!

LOL, Amy, would it surprise you to know that the bok choi & green onions came from my backyard? Once I get the new batch of Kimchi out of the crock & into a jar in the frig (& some in my belly) tomorrow, I’m starting a batch of cultured daikon & ginger. I picked a huge pile of Daikon radishes & turnips yesterday, & there are actually more out there. Pretty much all I do it play & teach music & grow, cook, & eat good food! And drink tea, of course! :D

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!
