This is a really tasty tea!
Once again, I’m not in the mood for fussing over a Gaiwan, nor do I have time. I steeped a 5G chunk of this for 3 minutes, & it is delicious. I resteeped for 4, still delicious. Now I’m going back for 5 min. Admittedly, this is the way I’m enjoying my Shu’s lately. I like them the other way too, but it takes time & if I wait around to have more time, I never end up drinking them.

So this one brewed into a nice deep cup of awesomeness. No fish, not even a compost pile, just a rich dark sweet cup with a nice cinnamon flavor to it. This was a sample from Garret, which I am very grateful for, & will probably need to purchase some of.

Meanwhile, I REALLY WANT the blue lotus teapot on the Mandala site. Garret, feel free to start wrapping it up for me, & if there is only one left, please set it aside, because I want it. When I buy it, can you send me a sample of the ‘not so mini tuochas’? They sound delicious!

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!
