I’m not having a very good tea day so far. I got up, did my yoga, made a cup of this, took a few sips, & jumped in the shower. It didn’t settle well with my stomach. I couldn’t drink any more of it, or I would have barfed. Plain & simple, some teas do that to me on an empty stomach, mostly green teas & ceylons. I can drink Assams, Keemuns, & Yunnans before breakfast, but this tea fits into the ’don’t drink before breakfast’ category. It also reminds me of the ‘iced tea’ kind of tea, so I put the cup in the frig, & left to meet a friend for breakfast, basically tea-less.

It’s improving!
I had an order from Butiki that appeared to be lost in the mail, no fault of Stacy’s though. The PO claimed to have delivered it last Thurs. I just got back from the PO, & it turns out it was sitting on the dead mail shelf. Now I can go practice, & I have a gig tonight, which always makes me happy!
Thanks! :)

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!
