drank Golden Yunnan by thepuriTea
2953 tasting notes

It’s August!
Last night I did my monthly tea inventory. I’m starting the month at 343 teas, a nice palindrome number. This includes samples, trades, & teas I’ve ordered recently…tea hiatus group, I think I need an intervention. You may all have to come to st louis & babysit me for a week to keep me from ordering anything else!

So, I’m starting the month with a plan for many many sipdowns! My son Leif started the ball rolling by polishing off the last of the Earl Gray Moonlight from Adagio. I continued the trend with this Golden Yunnan, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I’ve already reviewed it a few times, & although it may not be as awesome as the Golden Fleece, & it doesn’t really look like the photo, it is still a very drinkable & tasty cup of tea!

Teacount 341.

I know! I think you & I are really good for each other, but I think maybe we’re also really bad for each other, LOL.

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!
