It’s been a great day! The rehearsal with the Bass player went on for hours, he’s a really nice guy & it was fun! Then a guitar player friend called, & it looks like he’s going to come sit in on a few tunes (no rehearsal…). Also, I’m planning to do “A Love Supreme”, by John Coltrane, essentially a version similar to the Alice Coltrane version, sort of, with a friend reading the poem that was originally recited by Swami Satchidinanda! Check it out at Our version will just be harp, bass, & maybe guitar, with voice at the beginning & end. I’ve wanted to do this version for years!! Of course, the improv section will be totally different.

Anyway, my head is racing with excitement, & I don’t really have much to say about this tea, sorry. I had it western style, 3 steepings so far, & it is quite nice. Right now, on the 3rd cup, I’m really tasting the olive oil reference, and it has such a lovely creamy kind of texture. I promise a better review next week!

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!
