Headed out to a rehearsal in a few minutes.
I actually started with Qu Hao Silk by the Teaspot, but I’ll have to ‘add a tea’ & tell you about it later.

This will be a busy day, rehearsal 10 to 12, a few errands, students 3 – 5, sound check 7:00, concert at 8:00. More info on my FB, for those who want to hear a sample of the style of stuff we’re doing.

I love this Tiger!! I need a good Assam to get me going today, as I stayed up practicing until 2:00, again!!

Update: I’m at the rehearsal. I’m not playing during this number, so I’m sipping my Assam & reading reviews on my iPad. I just realized that THIS was my 666th review!
There must be something auspicious about THAT, right? :D

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!
