“Yayyyyyy!!” Shouted at the top of my lungs, “Zhu Right is BACK!”

And just in time! I’m such a grumpus today! I slept very deeply last night, the kind of deep sleep you have when you’re sick, & although I am not sick, I’m cranky & probably should take a nap.

Note to self: Drink a strong infusion of Elderberry this afternoon, just in case you’re fighting off a virus you don’t know about.

Anyway, my day is saved! I opened the front door to find 2 Boxes with my name on them! Not one, TWO!!. In the first box, this awesome tea. I immediately had to have a cup, 1 TB in mug, steep 3 minutes. It’s a wonderfully deep & strong cup of dark fancy designer 97% chocolate from somewhere exotic, with a little expresso, some sweet spices, and Re-Steep @ 5 min. I’m SO grateful that I get to drink this today!

Box #2: YAY!!!” Every bit as exciting as the Zhu Right, it’s my trade from Sil, the most awesome tea friend Ever! I just posted a pic of the yummies she sent on my FB. Sarah, you Rock!

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!
