There is a big pot of stew waiting for me, but after reading Bonnie’s Sheng post, I wanted some.

This is a super ‘clean’ tasting sheng, very mellow, with a nice energy about it. I already did a more extensive review, commenting on the tangerine peel flavor, so that’s all I’m saying.
I’m gonna relax & enjoy this for awhile.

I’d like to add that after a few cups this developes kind of ‘french bread’ quality to it. It’s really interesting!

Bonnie

Oh shut up! I just had ginger beef so there, and french onion soup BAM! (So yesterday I wasn’t on Steepster, I was cooking all day!)
A nice pot of tea and kicks back! We have it good,don’t we!

Terri HarpLady

LOL, Bonnie! Yes, we have it good! Us old ladies know how to eat!
I spent 2.5 days cooking this stew, I’ll have you know! I started the soup bones tues night before bed & let them go, adding carrots & celery last night before bed. This morning I strained everything & added stew meat, gradually adding veggies throughout the day so they wouldn’t turn to mush: carrots, parsnips, celery, turnips, caramelized onions & garlic, green beans, fresh rosemary & bay leaf. Also crushed fire roasted tomatoes! My 7 Qt crockpot is full! I’ll freeze the leftovers & get to eat stew for awhile! I wish I could beam some over to ya!
Slow cooking! Real Food! That’s where it’s at!

Mine was cooked in the crock pot too with onions,fresh ginger,garlic,wine etc. (Browned the roast first). While it was cooking I made ginger syrup,ginger candy and vanilla orange balsamic poppyseed dressing. Later made French onion soup and salad. When we cooks get the bug, watch out!

Yum!! I’m having dessert, which I rarely have, but I had one meyer lemon left on my little tree in the sunroom. That tree is blooming now, and the scent of the blossoms greets me everytime I come in the back door! So I needed to use that last lemon: meyer lemon custard, lightly sweetened with honey. It turned out really tart! I’ll eat a few bites & refrigerate the rest.

Bonnie

I’m on my way!

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!
