This is from the HHTTB. I’m not always a big floral fan, but I do like some, & I enjoy roses from time to time in my tea. This one is not bad, although I have had rosier ones. Shortly after drinking this my face started itching. Now before someone from Upton starts shouting, ‘It can’t be the tea!‘, it probably isn’t. I don’t think this is suppose to have any artificial flavors, which I do sometimes react to, but that kind of reaction for me is usually in the form of itchiness in my mouth & throat, or sometimes a burning sensation. So more likely my face itching is from airborn allergies, because St. Louis is allergy hell right now, since we had actually had some rain on sunday.

We haven’t had rain lately, but it’s suddenly allergy hell lately here in NW Arkansas as well. I think something has come into season.

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!
