I haven’t posted alot lately, mainly because I’ve been drinking alot of the same teas that I’ve already reviewed, and/or due to business. So I have to confess, getting a little bored with all the teas I have, for some reason, I guess because our senses always want novelty (the grass is always greener…). I mean, I have tons of teas here to drink, & nothing to drink, LOL.

Normally I start the morning with a robust black tea. I’m changing it up, at least a little. Because of BoxerMama’s Chai post yesterday, & also because I’ve been craving Chai, Leif & I started the morning with Adagio Chai, which is actually a pretty tasty Chai! We drank 2 pots with our breakfast, both sweetened with Stevia, no milk of any kind.

Then I was loitering on the Adagio site, looking at various blends. I wanted to order the Tardis Blend, I’ve wanted to try it for awhile, & they are out! Bummer! So I’m looking around, and I see Tony Stark’s blend: Lapsang, Tiger eye, and ginger! MMMMMmmmm! I have all those things! So the lab experiment begins: first cup was heaping half tsp of each plus several thin slices of ginger, add stevia. Ohhhh… ahhhhh…. yummm! 2nd cup = 1 tsp Tiger eye (SipDown, gonna have to get some more of that), 1/2 tsp Lapsang, slices of ginger & a little vanilla extract, & stevia. To die for. Off to my bubble bath…

Today I kinda did a similar thing, I mixed some local choco nib pu with the butiki plum pudding left from last night. Sounds strange but it was really good on a cold morning.

The only thing I didn’t like was the vanilla extra left a little bourbon aftertaste.
I wanted another cup of the blend I made, but I’m out of tigers eye. My next experiment was 1 tsp each of Lapsang, hazelnut, & I remembered I had some Vanilla Oolong. Those were steeped in a 16oz teapot with stevia. Not as good as the previous experiment, but still tasty! Now I’m fantasizing about Lapsang blends, LOL.

I can send you some Tardis blend if you want to trade something?

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!
