First Sipdown of the week!!
This is a pleasant cup, a little bit on the astringent side, but not bad. There is some sweet potato in there, a little clove maybe, & it’s although it’s not my favorite Keemun, it’s not bad, and now it’s gone!!
That puts me at 317 teas in my cupboard, I think. I added a few from butiki over the weekend, oh, and the verdant bundle…

So I’ve decided today is Sipdown Monday. I’m gonna look through each category of teas & try to finish off the ones that I don’t have much of. I really want to drop my numbers to something manageable, so I can actually drink everything on my list at least once a month! LOL :D

Sipdown Monday? Yeah, why not? Gives you the weekend to sort through and find your samples and set them aside for seriousbusiness Monday.

Naw, cavo, on the weekend I either run around playing gigs, or sit around in my PJs at Tony’s house being lazy. I never organize anything on the weekend! Today I just dug though the various shelves on my tea cupboards, looking for things small enough to polish off. I think I’ll do it again tomorrow, maybe I’ll just make this a sipdown week!

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!
