Hello Steepsterites!
This was my first tea of the morning. I’ve reviewed it many times. It’s a nice bold & malty cup with a rich oaky flavor & a slight citrus edge. I really enjoy it, & it resteeps pretty nicely too.

It’s been another busy day. Tony & I had tea, then we went to our favorite breakfast place, & then to Lowe’s, where I bought a new weed eater & a new stove. The oven on my 13 year old stove hasn’t worked right for about a year now, & lately has gotten even worse. Here’s the one I bought, if you’d like to see it. They marked the price down an additional $200. It’s still a little pricey, but I cook a lot, everything from scratch, so IMO its well worth it. I always feel like I should get the best quality I can afford, & Frigidaires are made in the USA. I like to get my tea from China, but not my appliances.

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!
