Two of my tea orders arrived! Yeah!
This is the first tea I’ve ever had from Steven Smith Teamaker.
When I was in 6th grade I had a crush on a boy named Steven Smith, LOL.
Anyway, this tea is VERY assam! Malty, caramely, fruity in a bright wine like way, & there is an undertone of allspice here too.
It also resteeps very well!

I love his teas! He has a shop here in Portland and its one of my favorites!

I only ordered 2 teas from him, & now I’m wishing I’d tried a few more!

TastyBrew

They sell his stuff at the grocery store here so I never run out. I have a variety (in bags — it’s what they sell in the grocery) that I can send you if you want. I don’t have them listed in my cupboard, but if you’re interested, I can PM you.

i’d like to try his teas sometime but i haaaaate ordering large quantities

TastyBrew

I can send some your way too! I should check and see what all I have on hand. I can always grab other flavors at the store if there’s something in particular you want to try. I love his stuff, so I always stock up. It’s great for travel too since it comes in a bag.

Terri HarpLady

Sil, I’m sending you samples of everything I ordered!
Tastybrew! Yeah! I’d love to sample anything of his you have, & will gladly share anything that’s in my cupboard!

Sil

Ok Terri! Sounds good! If I love them we might have to do a weird split order sometime heh

Terri HarpLady

Actually, I had a cool idea about that earlier…we’ll talk!

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!
