drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea
2951 tasting notes

I’m having a nice quiet morning. Drew left for his class at the college, Leif is still sleeping. No students until noon today, so I made myself a nice brekkie & have been savoring multiple steepings of my beloved Laoshan Black. I love this tea! This is one of the only black teas that I actually bother to re-steep. This is also one of the only teas that I always order 4 oz of at a time. I know I’ll love it, I know I’ll drink it. I’m currently still drinking the Fall picking, but I also just got a bag of the Spring version, so that I can do a comparison. But not today.
I love the thick mouth filling roasty chocolaty-ness of this. There for awhile I was drinking it everyday, but now I’m trying to cycle through ALL of my teas each month (I never quite make it, but I do at least get through all the black teas).

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!
