Hey Sil, remember when I first got this tea & dropped the cannister & some of it spilled out onto the floor? Remember that I scooped it up & put it into a recycled Ahmad tea cannister (because I didn’t want to put it back into the real cannister, which I was going to send you a sample from)… Well, today I finally finished the spilled tea from the Ahmad can, of course, I can’t really count it as a sipdown, since I still have plenty left in the original can. But I knew that you’d like to know! Hahaha!

I like this tea. I like the Tiger Assam better, but this is damn fine tea (sorry, I love saying that) too. Its a nice full tasting brew, with a hint of smoke. Very satisfying! I made a 16 oz in my stainless & ceramic sippy cup to drink en route to a concert I played today over in Illinois. It was perfect.

Sil

mini sipdown! lol

also, this is a nice one too…actually i like all three but the tiger assam is the one i can drink most often if that makes sense

Terri HarpLady

Oh yeah! I could drink the Tiger every day! It’s awesome!

Cavocorax

I could too, but I don’t want to empty my tin because then what will I do with it? I wish it could Judy magically replenish itself…

Terri HarpLady

Judy?? LOL, gotta love auto correct, right? It gets so damn creative sometimes!
Cavo, my shelves are full of repurposed tins. I just glue the label of the new tea to it’s new tin. However, it WOULD be nice if A & D sold refill bags…hmmmm….gotta send em an email suggesting that!
Anyway, I don’t drink Tiger everyday either, because I’m trying to adhere to the ‘checklist’ this month…we’ll see.
Rules are made to be broken!

Cavocorax

Haha. So true. I nearly broke my tea buying hiatus, but so far I’m staying strong.

Gosh it’s hard sometimes. ;P

Terri HarpLady

That it is! I almost broke mine the other night, but I reminded myself, “there will always be another sale.” Plus, it’s not really like I need more tea! LOL

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!
