They’ve been promising us snow on & off in St. Louis for awhile. It usually blows north of us, sometimes south. We get rain, we get sleet, freezing rain, slush, occasionally we’ll get some Thunder Snow (I love that). Anyway, it’s finally snowing, but it’s 33 F, so even though they’re saying 4 – 8 inches, by the time it hits the ground it’s slush. Anyway, I loaded up my electric harp & sound system last night, & I’m getting ready to head out to play a gig.

I haven’t drank Jin Jun Mei for awhile, but today seemed like the perfect day for it! I made some Cinnamony sweet potato hashbrowns, a couple poached eggs, a couple slices of bacon. JJM was the perfect savory compliment, malty, peppery goodness. I drank the first steep while cooking, 2nd steep while eating, & I’m taking the 3rd steep with me in my sippy cup, to savor while driving.

That food sounds amazing; it sounds like a perfect pairing. :)

Thunder snow?!? I live in NY and I’ve never experienced THAT.

We seem to get some every winter. Basically, it’s snowing, & you get thunder & lightening too! I love it! The thunder usually isn’t as loud as the thunder you get with rain, & the lightening is just up in the clouds, I think.

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!
