Leif & I did some work in the garden, pruning out the old canes in the blackberry patch, removing weeds, & repairing the trellises. A storm came up, so we weren’t able to finish the project, but we got quite a bit done, & it already looks so much better. The blackberries are starting to flower, & they always look so beautiful. I’ll make sure & post a pic to FB later in the week.
So…it was raining, with thunder & lightening. We came in & enjoyed a couple of pots of tea together. This was the first, & it was actually pretty nice, IMO. I’m one of those people that prefers vanilla ice cream over any other flavor (coconut milk ice cream, that is). So this has a creaminess to the taste & was rather enjoyable. If I was Christopher Walken I’d say, “Needs more Vanilla”.
Otherwise, it was nice.

Nothing like a scoop of vanilla ice cream. :)

oh no! I just thought of “Needs more cowbell” today while I was listening to a song with cowbell.. really that happens with any song with cowbell, I guess.

LOL, I actually ordered a tea from Adagio called, “more cowbell”.
Me & my son were messing around on the adagio site, & typing in random names for teas, just joking around, & there it was! Of course, I had to order it!

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!
