This tea has come up a few times recently on here, & so I decided today was the day to bring it out of hiding & enjoy it.

“No MOAR hoarding!” I can hear Sil shouting all the way from Toronto.
“My Preciousssss….” Bonnie calls out from Colorado.
Ah, but this IS the exception, Sil.
Sorry Bonnie, this is my Birthday Present.

I’ve been sipping from these leaves for hours. I kept sipping while a few students came & went, tea & music go so nicely together.
I took a break from the leaves & worked in my Blackberry patch, pulling weeds, repairing trellis, training the canes, & inhaling the aroma of the mulched leaves & such that cover the ground beneath my berry bushes. The aroma reminded me of this tea. It reminded me that this tea was waiting for me. I finished my work & returned to the leaves, & I’ve been sipping ever since.
I’m still fairly new to Puerhs. This is the oldest Shu I’ve had. This is also the best Shu I’ve had. I love this tea.

Today would be a day for me to try some of my
Puerhs except going to the hallway for boiling water is annoying. I really hope they can fix this today. Fml.

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!
