nom nom!!!
I feel like cookie monster right now, this tea is so delicious. When I saw it in the Here’s Hoping TTB, I immediately said to myself, “That’s MINE! mineminemineminemine!!!”
I want to thank the people who had that box before me, you know who you are (awkward soul, claire) for including some really wonderful teas that I wanted to try!! Usually by the time the box gets to me, it’s just a bunch of chemical laden cast offs that nobody wanted, so I’m generally disappointed. THIS time was different, & I really am grateful. So again, I thank you!

Yes, I took all the awesome stuff from the box, & I would feel guilty, but as Tea Sipper will discover, I loaded it with goodies just for her! So I am absolved of all guilt! LOL, I also tossed in a few castoffs of my own, which aren’t bad, just not to my taste.

Today I poured the whole sample into a cup, steeped 1 min/2/3. All steepings were AWESOME! And it’s a sipdown, leaving me with only 265 teas!

Today is my youngest child’s 21st birthday. His name is Leif, & I posted his pic on my FB https://www.facebook.com/terri.langerak. He’s a great kid, in his 3rd year of college, & although he looks like a stoner, he’s actually as straight as they come, AND he drinks tea.
Feel free to wish him a Happy Birthday.

I used to have hair like that. Actually it was to my waist. Nowadays it is mostly down the sink. I miss my hair. Jealous.

In my house we refer to that as ‘Robert Plant’ hair. My oldest bro had the exact same hair. Leif’s hair has been long most of his life. in 4th grade he begged me to let him die it blue, so for his birthday we bleached & then died it midnight blue. Over the next month it fades down to a soft blue, then we died it again. We re-died it a few more times, & then he let it go. Eventually we cut out the remnants of the treated hair. That was his last hair cut. It’s hard to be a rebel in my house, because almost anything goes. The only real rule is no drugs or alcohol on the premises. And be nice. And Be responsible for yourself & your stuff. Oh, & BE yourself! That’s pretty much it.

My brother has the exact same color of hair and almost as much curl, but it’s more wave really. He lets his grow to shoulder length, but sometimes cuts it short. When my husband first met him, he thought for sure that my bro was a stoner because of his voice/accent. 8 years later, my husband is still suspicious, but I try to convince him that its just the rocky mountain outdoor dude voice. :) It doesn’t help, though, that my brother just acts plain weird, seriously on-another-planet weird. :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY and keep your cookies away from mommy!

I love your rules! The friend who introduced me to my hubby had waist length hair and it was luminized, so it was deep, shiny black with almost a blue sheen! He is now bald but that looks great on him, too. He really pulls off bald! He misses his hair, though.

Thanks for the birthday wishes for my son Leif!
And Angel, thanks always for the wonderful tea! I split an order from TeaVivre with Sil recently, but I’ll probably have to place another one before long for myself!

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!
