Yes, I am still hoarding some of this, & how could I not. I hadn’t drank any for awhile, & so I steeped & resteeped, filling a 16 oz cup to take with me to my gigs today. It was such a pleasure to sip while playing: Puer, Ginger, Licorice, Elderberry…it is the most delicious tea blend ever, IMO. I will be sad when it is gone, but I also have a small supply of Yanxin’s Reserve Shu, & I have plenty of licorice, elderberry & ginger, so I might try making a similar blend. I even have sichuan peppercorns! It is rare that I enjoy Shu mixed with anything else, I prefer such teas on their own, but this one is the exception.

Yeah, there are some exceptions to the ‘No More Hoarding’ rule!

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!
