…sigh…it’s so nice to relax in bed & sip a cup of this. This really is one of those teas that isn’t just a beverage, it’s an experience. The aroma alone is so rich & satisfying, like dark chocolate melted over some fresh from the oven pastry. This first cup is so complex, not just in flavor, but also in the mouth: a very dark chocolate, so satisfying, interlaced with essences of cedar, clove, blackstrap molasses, & the tartness of hibiscus. My tongue feels thick around the sides, with a bright shiny tingle on the tip, LOL.

I’m gonna resteep these leaves, dedicating the 2nd cup to my tea sister Sil.
Then I’ll contemplate breakfast…I’m thinking asparagus, eggs, hollandaise, & almond flour biscuits…
I love Sundays!

I wish I could set a mug of tea in a transporter & have it miraculously beamed to your desk, still steaming hot & awesome.

Sil

oh god that would be awesome..

I think this is the perfect tea to match with salted caramels. Sounds like a lovely breakfast! You know how to live it up!
I had lemon-vanilla cardamom pancakes. Sometimes I make Chai pancakes. (Always freeze some)

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!
