I’m starting the day with this Assam. I got a sample of it from Stacy a few weeks back, & it was wonderfully tasty, so I ordered a couple of oz which came yesterday, along with a few other things.

I love the name of this tea! It’s also a beautiful tea to look at, & although it’s not as wild & crazy as the Premium Tiawanese, there’s still a bit of an adventure in getting it from the bag through the tsp & into the cup. It has a nice sweet & malty flavor, a little on the astringent side perhaps, but tasty none the less, & it resteeps pretty nicely too! I’m on the 2nd steeping, but my eyes keep roving towards a certain sample of licorice tea…

Thanks Stacy, for all you do for us crazy tea drinkers! I think I speak for everyone when I say, “We Love You, Ms Stacy!!!”

Do I want this one Terri? I’m guessing yes lol

Probably! LOL
I enjoyed the first cup, steeped at 3min 30sec, & honestly, I think the 2nd cup, steeped at 5 min, was even better! It had this awesome fullness to it that you rarely get in a 2nd cup.

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!
