drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea
2951 tasting notes

I woke up reluctantly at 6:30 am (which is early for me).
Little Terri was talking about the new tattoo she wants.
Theresa (the office lady, business manager, bitch…oops, did I say that?) was talking about bills, taxes, & getting organized. That’s all she ever talks about.

I turned on Pandora’s “calm meditation” channel & did yoga. That’s the only way to get them to be quiet.

Laoshan Black, you are wonderful.
“Have I told you lately that I love you?”

Starfevre

oooh, new tattoo!

Terri HarpLady

We love our tattoos! :D

Terri HarpLady

Of course, we don’t really have the funds to get one right now, since we keep spending our money on tea…

Indigobloom

a net tat?! do tell!

Terri HarpLady

I have a butterfly on my right hand, by the thumb & first finger, flying towards my wrist, kind of old style romantic, black with turquoise shading. You can see it on my FB pic a little, & I’d like another one on the left hand, but not the same as the one on the right. Maybe more of a Mendhi or tribal style…still not sure…still looking…sigh…I also want to do more on my right arm…and…

Indigobloom

I meant *new tat. ha.

I have one on my left hip. A tree of life. Took me forever to figure out what I wanted, but then when I did, it just clicked and I KNEW that was it. So I really want another one but feel like I should wait until the inspiration strikes.
Your butterfly sounds beautiful!!

Terri HarpLady

Thanks! I knew what you meant, :D
I have 2 others, both on my left arm. One is a symbol I drew while I was meditating once, then I have another butterfly (I love butterflies, LOL) on that shoulder.

Starfevre

I have some cats on my right back/shoulder, a shower of stars over the rest of my back (25 stars of various sizes and shadings) and 4 cats paws on my neck/shoulder on the right side, all in black and white. Mt next will be a coloured maple leaf but I don’t know where I want to put it yet.

Terri HarpLady

The Tree of life sounds awesome, I love the shower of stars idea.

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!
