It appears that the inch or 2 of snow we were going to get, that would have turned to some form of ice later in the day, went straight from snow flurries to ice. Dammit!

As I stood on the precipice of my doorway, debating on whether I really needed to run errands before my massage, Tim (the awesome massage DuDe) texted, “Lets resched, it’s sleetin like a MoFo!” (Yes, that’s really the way Tim talks, LOL).

So there you have it. I’m back in my PJs, sipping a cup of Tony’s favorite. I bought a few oz at the London Tea Room the other day, as I thought it would be a nice one to share with my Steepster book club pals. The funny thing is, I used to not care much for it, but it has grown on me. It’s an earl grey type with the addition of orange. Although they denied it at the store, I think it also has grapefruit in it. I think an addition of vanilla would be nice. It definitely requires stevia. Anyway, it’s bright, acidic, & fills the mouth with the taste of juicy orange (& a little grapefruit), & that flavor lingers, to brighten up a wintery day.

Yep, it’s like down that here too. (I think we’re at the tail end of it, though—about 11:15 a.m., so maybe you’ll clear out this afternoon. Be safe!)

Really, I’ll just stay in. It’s gonna all melt in the morning anyway, so I’ll just go to the PO, bank, etc tomorrow. Meanwhile, all of my afternoon students have already cancelled, so it’s officially a Pajama Day. I’m gonna make one more cup of tea, & go clean my office. This is the perfect day for it!

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!
