I decided to go ahead & steep this one western style also, pretty much using the same parameters that I used for the Shui Jin Gui. It also has that ‘after aroma’ thing in the sinuses, & is a very nice & flavorful roasty kind of oolong that I love.

I don’t have any gigs this weekend! It’s been weeks since I had a weekend off, & I think it’s suppose to rain all weekend too. Tony’s picking my up in about an hour, & we’re going to meet another couple at the japanese restaurant. Then I think we’re spending the weekend in our PJs, being couch potatoes, cooking & eating awesome food, & drinking tea. I have packed a ridiculous amount of tea for the weekend…lol…I always take more than I can ever drink, because I don’t really know what I’ll want to drink, so I have to have a variety, right?
Just for the record, Tony & I have been together 13 years. His house is 5 minutes away from mine.
BTW, I posted pics of my garden on my FB, for those who would like to see https://www.facebook.com/terri.langerak?ref=tn_tnmn

Awwww! I want your week end! Are you kidding me? Rainy PJ week ends are awesome! Enjoy! P.S. having sleepovers at your boyfriend’s after 13 years must keep the fun in the relationship, I think it’s great :-) Oh, and you can never pack too much tea.

LOL, I’m a terrible girlfriend. Tony is a saint most the time, considering how little time we get to spend together. I’ve had such a busy performance schedule, which is a good thing, but I’m so glad to have a few days. We were gonna take the Harleys out, but I’m kind of glad to stay in.

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!
