I just got home from playing a wedding in the Lobby of the Fabulous Fox Theater! I love the Fox, it’s been years since I played there, but 2 of the guys from the stage crew remembered me! That was really nice!

Anyway, what better to come home to than a steaming hot cup of tea, right? I’ve been working my way through the box from Yunnan Sourcing, & this one is next. I think my favorite selection (so far) is the Wild Tree Purple Varietal Black tea of Dehong. Of course, I’ve only drank it once, and I have enough to sample it several different ways, along with the other teas I purchased. And speaking of black teas, I just noticed Yunnan Sourcing has all of their black teas on sale until sept 12. The promocode is black10 (how’s that for enabling?).

Anyway, this tea is nice too! There is a nice dark chocolate depth to it, an earthy sweetness, a sweet roastiness, & a satisfying mouth that reminds me of a really awesome 97% gourmet cacao, kind of thick, & almost a powdery feel too.

I put off ordering from Yunnan Sourcing for a long time, but I’m very pleased with everything they sent to me (still have a few other things to sample), & I think Scott & I will be great friends! ;)

How neat! I’ve been to the Fabulous Fox before. Took a weekend trip to see Louis CK and had some beers at Urban Chestnut. The lobby is gorgeous. Good times! Yum, the tea sounds great too. I will have to check out Yunnan Sourcing…

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!
