I thought the water would never boil! Finally, my first cup of the day!
I’m steeping this western style again: dump the whole package in a cup, steep 3 mins, with subsequent steepings @ 4 & 5 mins. It’s very satisfying this way, & although I enjoy it in a Gaiwan as well, this is easy & I want easy.

Sil

i love just dumping this in a tea mug. makes me happy.

Terri HarpLady

Yup!
When I surest saw the red packages, I was like, what the £^@€??
I eyed the packaging with suspicion, to be quite honest. But the aroma & taste is awesome, so I’m over all that.

Terri HarpLady

Surest = first
I hate auto correct! :ppp

Sil

sadly i knew what you meant. stupid autocorrect

K S

Ok, I got to know… how do you misspell first so badly that auto correct turns it into surest? lol

Sil

You don’t. The new auto correct with phones and crap if you’re using apple products is effing ridiculous. You don’t wanna know what it does to some things I type that ARE words!

K S

Ah, I understand. I am so last century I had texting turned off on my phone. Most people I know would die without it.

Sil

Today I tried to type pitas and it autocorrected to potassium.

Terri HarpLady

LOL, seriously? potassium? That’s ridiculous!
When I was typing this morning I was using my iPad, it’s much worse than my computer for twisting what I’m trying to say into something else. Kind of reminds me of my ex-husband…

Profile

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!
