First Sipdown of the day!
Tony & I just finished breakfast, & now we’re hanging around in our PJs waiting for the Cardinals game to start. There’s a 1 hour rain delay, so we have the sound turned off & Tony is serenading me on guitar. He is not a professional musician (meaning he doesn’t play gigs), & he will try to tell you that he is not very good, but that would be total BS, because he is an awesome drummer, with an amazing drum set. He used to play with people when he was young, but he doesn’t really like performing much, & really hates hauling his equipment around, so he just turns on music & plays for fun & enjoyment at home. Of course, that’s the most important reason to play anyway! He’s also a very good guitarist, and I enjoy listening to him. He’s also a fair blues pianist (thanks to yours truly, who taught him everything he knows).

This Assam is bold & beautiful, from the box Sil sent me. This was a very generous sample. This is the 4th time I’ve reviewed it, & I’m sad to see it go. Thanks again Sil!

Sil

well who knows..maybe in future we could do a joint purchase with some other black loving tea people and get 100g divided 4 ways of some teas that otherwise would be tooooo much!

Cavocorax

Ohhhhhh, twist my arm, why don’t you. :P

Terri HarpLady

That’s 3! We just need one more taker…
Sil, remember my idea of a few months ago?
:)

Sil

Terri…yes! :) sadly of the girls here (cavo’s not here yet) I’m the only real nearly almost always prefer black tea drinker. Heh

Cavocorax

Just think how much trouble I’ll be when I am there! I’ll just make it THAT MUCH EASIER to order tea.

I’d like to split a Matcha order sometime too btw. In case you’re into that sometime. (Doesn’t have to be soon)

Sil

dude…i could just send you a bunch of matcha lol have you tried any? I can send some in your box because i’m bad and forgot it at home today – it’s not sealed yet so i can toss in samples of the ones that i have open. I try to open them a little at a time….

Terri HarpLady

Well…I still like the idea of a perpetual 4 person TTB, where we just keep taking turns adding a tea. In fact, I’d be willing to start it by ordering 4oz of #49, dividing it up into 4 baggies, sending 3 to you. You can keep one, add something, & send to Cavo. By then we’ll have a 4th person for sure.

Cavocorax

Sil – you sent me about 5 and Crowkettle did the same. I’m thinking I’d like to (eventually) pick up a bag of my own!

And I might be interested in a TTB, depending on what the shipping would be like!

Sil

oh yeah…i did didn’t i lol. well when you see new flavours show up in my log, feel free to pester me for some haha

Terri HarpLady

Postage…theoretically it would always weigh 3-4 oz, so $3.25 – 3.85 to send from US to Canada (as opposed to the $15 I just spent to mail TTB-A)

Profile

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!
