Good Morning!
And what a tasty tea to wake up to!
I think maybe I’ve decided this year’s blend is just as good, & possibly better than last year’s. I enjoyed this with my first yogurt parfait in years. I got some Kefir granules recently, & I’m making milk kefir for the boys, & making Kefir from canned coconut milk for myself (because I can’t have milk). It’s awesome! If I let it culture longer it becomes yogurt. So I layered blueberries, that coconut yogurt, a spoon of fruit juice sweetened apricot jelly, & some crumbled walnuts. It was like having blueberry cheesecake for breakfast, not too sweet, but so creamy & good. And this cup of tea was perfect alongside it: robust, chocolaty, sweet, malty, yummy!

so annoyed this ended up being sold out after i changed my mind to pick some up.

Sorry about that, Sil! We’ve had so many people jumping on these sales- it’s incredible. We will be able to reblend this one as soon as our new Wuyi arrives ( XD ) around the end of September.

Profile

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!
