From the HHTTB

I almost didn’t make a cup of this. Someone wrote on the label, “This tea does not steep well due to content of black pepper.”
Then I figured, what the heck? I’m making 4 oz cups of all these teas I’m sampling today so that I can get through a lot of teas without getting water logged, so I made a cup. I added stevia & coconut milk kefir (which is pretty nice for a creamer, it turns out!).
This is delicious, & part of me is thinking of keeping it.
But the black pepper sensation definitely does linger!
For quite some time!

LOL! Of course you are!
I’m perplexed: I keep trying to post a comment to my ice wine post, thanking people, etc. I’ve tried 4 times now, & it won’t post! But I can comment anywhere else with no problems. Wierd!

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!
