This tea is so awesome!
It’s just what I need today, when I’m feeling a little grumpy, & thanks to BoxerMama Little Terri is throwing a fit over wanting pancakes for breakfast ;p
I reminded her that pancakes are only for days when we don’t have anything to do, because even paleo pancakes will be slathered with Maple syrup (grade B, & real. Is there really any other kind?), rendering us all worthless for the day.
I promised pancakes for Saturday! She also gets to pick out next tea…
So we’re having eggs & bacon on a bed of sauteed veggies, & this glorious tea, which competes pretty highly in my mind with Laoshan Black. I drank the first 2 steepings while cooking, & am having #3 & 4 while we eat.
I have just enough left of this for one more session.
That will be a sad sipdown day.
I really hope David brings this one back!
“Please, sir, I want some more.”

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!
