Sipdown #3 today is another tea from TastyBrew, thanks!
I don’t really have a lot to say about it, as I was starting 2 new batches for fermented cukes, & jarring up a rip batch. It always takes so much longer to do these things than you think it’s going to!! I’m hoping my Cuke vines will hold out for a few more weeks! If they do, we’ll have enough ‘Bubbies’ style pickles to last for quite awhile!
I sipped on this cup on & off while I was scrubbing cukes, peeling garlic, picking Dill seed heads, & stuffing the first crock. It’s a pleasant green with a vegetal taste, what can I say?

During the prep & stuffing of the 2nd crock I drank the cold brew of yesterday’s Dan Cong leaves (which I’m disappointed to admit was not a sipdown, I still have another little foil package of it).

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!
