Sample Sipdown!
On 2 of my orders from about a month ago, Stacy sent me samples of this tea. For some reason they were different quantities. One weighed in at 2G, the other at 5G. They were clearly the same tea, so I combined them into my 16 oz teapot, steeped 3 minutes at 180, & am enjoying the pot as my first tea of the day.

This is a lovely cup, with nuances of almond & melon, & after I swallow it, I taste cinnamon! There’s also a lemony brightness to it. It’s quite nice.

Thank you Stacy!

The first samples of this we gave out weren’t measured out.

oh well! They were tasty mixed together, & just the right amount for my teapot! Thanks so much, Stacy! :)

Awesome! :) I think at first I just ended up adding a fair amount of the sample for experimenting with the brewing instructions since we hadn’t officially come up with brewing parameters yet.

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!
