This is my first cup of tea in 2 days. I woke up in the early hours of monday morning with a stomach bug, which seems to be going around. I spent all day monday sleeping away the delirium of feverishness, & today have mostly slept as well. I was awake for a few reading sessions (I’m now past 50% on American Heiress!).

This brings to mind an Irish Fiddle tune, “When sick, is it tea you want?” I can’t drink tea on an empty stomach, so I had none.

Now I’m on the mend, having a bowl of soup. It’s late in the day, but I really wanted some tea! I opened the cupboard & went straight into the ‘hoarding’ section, & I knew I wanted this. Such a richly balanced blend, I know that many of us had hoped that David would create a Winter blend, but since winter is almost over, that seems unlikely. I can only hope that he will make another summer blend. Until then, I will continue to hoard this until it’s gone.

Hope you feel better soon, Terri! Glad you had The American Heiress to keep you company :)

Thanks Josie! My appetite is returning, & that’s always a good sign!
American heiress has turned out to be a much smoother read than Anna karenina, & it’s going by very quickly. At this rate I’ll finish it long before the deadline :)

Aww no, sick twins! Hope you’ll feel better soon. You truly do deserve a hoarded tea at a time like this.

Profile

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!
