Sipdown #4 (I think I’m on 4).
This is a sad sipdown, as this really is a tasty tea!
This is one of the first Wuyi’s I fell in love with, & although it may not be as fancy & complex as some of the other Wuyi’s I’ve drank since then, it is delicious & wonderful. The main thing that comes to mind with this one is the banana pudding my mom used to make, with the vanilla wafers. Yeah, I bet your mom made it too!

i’m jealous of your sipdowns..

Terri HarpLady

yeah, but didn’t you get a bunch in over the weekend? :)

Sil

uh… yeah but net total for the weekend is an increase in cupboard size lol AND my orders came in today…sooo yeah i’m anticipating being at 220 ish when i get home…

and i need to get through a few more teas from the box so that i can mail it out this week

Counting today’s Sipdowns so far, I think I’m at 278, with a Mandala arriving today, which will basically cancel out today’s sipdowns. Still, it feels good to let go of small quantities & if I can ever get myself to stay on Hiatus for awhile, I’d really like to get down to 200 or less.

Sil

i received 13 teas today… plus kittenna has said i can sample her teas…so that’s another 20 to sample before i can get back to my own teas…in addition to the travelling tea box at my house right now…with a swap from kaylee and dexter in bound sometime this month. oh and did i mention MY verdant order in coming..and the BBB box… eep!

Terri HarpLady

I’m only laughing because I was in your shoes last for the last 2 weeks! I had both boxes, verdant orders, etc. I was so busy sampling everyone else’s teas that I couldn’t drink my own!
My Mandala order arrived today!

Sil

i really want to place another mandala order….and shanti tea has a few things i want… sigh

Awww. There’s just no winning eh?
Once Kittenna finally rescues her teas, and you ship that traveling box back out you’ll be back to drinking your own tea and your numbers will drop. If not, just stick ‘em in an envelope and I’ll make them disappear. :P

Sil

Haha cavo…you are welcome to come shop at my house anytime…there are very few teas you wouldn’t be able to take several cups of

Ali Bee's Bake Shop

This one is nice, but admittedly, I love Master B’s Jin Guanyin & Shui Jin Gui Wuyi better!

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!
