drank Golden Monkey by Teavana
2971 tasting notes

I have to be out the door for a rehearsal in 15 minutes. Usually I’m still in my room doing yoga right now. So I’m attempting to shove food in my face & get some caffeine going too.

According to my chart, I’m suppose to be drinking the sipdown of Verdant’s Zhu Rong. I can’t do it. I’m not ready. It might be the last cup of that tasty tea ever, so it warrants a special occasion. I want to allow time to fully savor that last serving, in all it’s steepings. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe I’ll have pumpkin waffles with maple syrup for breakfast…

Your chart? Did you make yourself a tea chart?

:D
It’s an inventory, basically listing all my teas by type, really pretty simple. I printed it out, & the ‘rule’ is I make a mark next to each tea when I drink it, so that I work my way through the collection (instead of just drinking my favorites all the time). Of course, I’m allowed to cheat once in awhile, LOL

That’s a good idea. I think I may need to try something like that, to help me mix it up a little better. Sometimes I think it’s been months since I’ve had a tea, and when I go to log it, it turns out I had it the week prior. whoops!

The funny thing is, I made it through my entire collection of straight black teas (18) in a week! With one exception…the last cup of Zhu Rong. I’ve decided that last cup will be my reward for finishing my taxes (which I’m suppose to be working on right now…shhhh….don’t tell Ms Theresa!)

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!
