Tony (my awesome man of 13 years) actually made his first tea order!
He’s been drinking London Tea Room’s ‘Jubilee’, which is an earl grey, for quite some time. He used to drink English breakfast, until he tried earl grey, & now that’s pretty much all he will drink. So he was at a coffeeshop & they had an earl from Ahmad tea, which he really enjoyed, so he ordered some. He knows I like breakfast blends so he ordered some of their English Breakfast for me (because he once heard me say, “There’s no point only ordering one tea. If you’re paying for shipping you might as well order 2 or 3”). I’ve never tried Ahmad teas, so there’s something to look forward to.

This tea came out of Traveling Tea Box ‘A’. I wanted something caffeine free for the evening, so I kept 2 bags. I double bagged it, & I’m glad because there really isn’t a lot there, flavor-wise. I also added stevia, & that helped. It’s ok, passable, & probably my last tea of the night.

Ahmad has a couple of good stout breakfast teas I like muchly: Warwick Assam and Hampton Breakfast (which hits you in the muzzly, sleepy face with a truncheon).

I’m not exactly sure what he ordered for me, something breakfast related. I don’t see him much during the week, even though he only lives 5 minutes away, LOL. Maybe that’s why we’ve managed to stay together for so long! ;)
Anyways, I have a valentines gig tonight, then I’ll stop over for a few hours & see what he bought & although it will be late for drinking it, I’ll at least take a whiff!

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!
