Good morning Steepster, this is Ms Theresa. Terri the Harp Player (juvenile rebel) & her sidekick little terri (4 year old with a penchant for ordering expensive teas with our credit card) are both grounded for the day, pending the completion of ALOT of office work!!

I am in charge & we’ll be drinking grown up teas all day, while I get things under control. Sometimes that’s just the way it has to be!

I’m sorry to say that this is a sipdown! I have thoroughly enjoyed this blend, which is such a wonderful combination of Laoshan Black, Wild Picked Yunnan Jin Jun Mei, Big Red Robe, Willow Grove Shu, & Aged Silver Needle White. It nicely pulls together the best qualities of each of the aforementioned teas, resulting in a cup that is bold enough to start my morning, and laced with all the flavors that I love: chocolate, malt, caramel, cinnamon…ahhh, I only regret that it is gone. Hopefully David will create a similar blend soon.

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!
