Yay, I won the Haiku contest!! The winning Haiku was for this tea. I felt like I should do something to celebrate, so I picked the last of the peaches from my peach tree, made an amazing peach cobbler from this recipe http://www.ovenloveblog.com/grain-free-peach-cobbler-paleo-gaps/#comment-10526, & I also made peach coconut milk ice cream.
I just had my dessert, & enjoyed a cup of the Tippy Golden Assam with it, taking photos etc for my blog, Terri’s Airy Fairie World! My blog is new, I’ve only posted twice. Last night I posted a tour of my garden, with photos of lots of yummy things. If you’d like to visit:

If all goes well, my next post will include the peach cobbler & ice cream recipes, the Haiku, & a review of Khongea Tippy Golden Assam :)

Thanks, Stacy, for the fun contest & all your wonderful teas!

Here’s the Haiku:
Life can be bitter
and yet bitter reveals sweet
Life is bitter sweet.

Mine was more about shamelessly promoting tea (and maybe Stacy!) haha

Profile

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!
