This is a nice creamy one, with almonds & flowers in the flavor!
My guitar player friend came over to rehearse today, for a concert we’re playing next week at Webster University. It will be all his original compositions, with harp, guitar, bass, strings, & some vocalizations. It’s pretty cool stuff, with influences of Raga style music (he studied with Imrat Khan, famous sitar player from India who teaches in St. Louis), jazz, & other styles.

He is a tea drinker, & the last time he came over I turned him on to one of the Laoshan greens & Ms He’s Dragonwell. He loved them both! So today it was this Tieguanyin, of which I still have enough for one more session! Of course, it was a big hit! How could it not be? He’d never had a green oolong, & was immediately enamored with the floral taste.

Maybe I’ll make him a sampler bag of amazing teas as a gift.

Great idea! I hope he likes it.

Maybe if he likes it enough, I’ll have a tea ordering buddy, right?

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!
