I made pancakes for breakfast. My current favorite gluten free pancake recipe is this one, from Elana’s pantry http://www.elanaspantry.com/silver-dollar-pancakes/. I replace the honey with Maple syrup (grade B is the really good stuff), & I like to add a tsp or more of cinnamon, maybe a scrape or 2 of nutmeg, & sometimes I add powdered ginger too. They are excellent plain, or with a light drizzle of maple syrup. Yum!! I even have leftovers for a snack later. I’ll probably make a little almond butter & pancake sandwich to have with tea…

I drank a re-steep of TeaVivre’s golden monkey with my breakfast (drank the first steep in bed). So this Maple Pecan Oolong just seemed like the perfect follow up! I’m drinking it with stevia, & it’s rich & buttery, sweet & nutty.

And it’s gone! My 2nd sip down of the day!


Mmm that sounds delish!! can’t wait to try that recipe out

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!
