Om NOM nom slurp…burp…
I’m on location at The Bottleworks, home of the Schlafly beer brewery. I don’t drink, but their food is good too. I’ve been pigging out. The tea selection here is the Numi box, which is usually acctable, but currently mostly empty. Luckily I had an envelope of this in my purse, & my little portable brew basket, so I’m happily slurping.
This is such a lovely black tea, so rich in flavors: chocolate, caramel, nuts. I can really agree that it resembles German Chocolate cake, & I really love it. It also resteeps well. I,ve enjoyed 3 steepings @ 3 min, 4, then 5. Satisfying!

:D Gotta have it!
Of course, people at the restaurant probably always think I’m a nut, but what other people think is none of my business, right?

Here’s the brew basket I’m currently using. It’s pretty handy.

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!
