A few months ago Sil, Cavocorax, & I split an order from the Tea Spot. We each got tins of Bolder Breakfast, shared a few things, & got several sample sizes of things. Katie, from The Tea Spot, also sent me a few samples to try, including this one.

I’m not always a fan of smokey teas. The first couple of times I tried a lapsang tea it freaked me out, LOL. However, I’ve developed more of a liking for them. On the other hand, I absolutely love ginger always!
I have actually fantasized about a blend that would be lapsang, ginger, & vanilla, & have experimented with it for awhile occasionally. So I wanted to sample this.

During the sip the Lapsang was there, but I didn’t taste the ginger, but after a few sips it began to build, bringing a warmth to my mouth, my sinuses, & my belly. This is a tasty, warming blend that will be especially nice on a cold winter’s night. I added a little stevia, & the sweetness really brings out a caramel-like flavor that really enhances the smoke & ginger. Yum!
Thanks for the sample Katie!

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!
