I’m pretty sure I’ve decided that this is my favorite black tea of all time. Of course, then I start thinking of all the other black teas that I love with all my heart, & I realize that although I am true to my man, I’ll never be monogamous when it comes to tea. There are just so many amazing teas out there!!! If I ever make a list of my top 10 most favorite (of all my favorites) tea, this one will be on it, along with 9 others, all jostling for the top.

Incidentally, this tea is on sale through the end of today at 25% off. Even though I already have a pretty good supply of it, some of the minions living in my head (led by little terri, of course) are screaming that we need to get MOAR!!!!!

Oh, I just realized this was my 1400th tasting note! :)

Daaang. I meant to say earlier when you jokingly mentioned it’s on sale and I called you an enabler (hee) you did in fact motivate me to grab some (couldn’t at the time, commenting issues). Excited about it arriving! So yay to motivation/enabling. ;)

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!
