Sweet honey notes, toastiness, that coriander essence, & fruitiness. This is my after dinner tea.

Dear Sil, would you believe I’m running out of teas? LOL, don’t worry, I have a few left, and the night is young, but it has occurred to me that several of the sipdown candidates I brought to Tony’s are puerh samples, which require multiple steepings.

Nonetheless, I will carry on…waterlogged tea-drunk…

haha i think i need to toss my hat in at this point lol. Nearly all the teas i have that i could sipdown are black teas, which, while caffeine doesn’t generally affect me…tonight would likely prove to be the exception. lol So i’m stopping here…at 218 unless some crazy insane part of me changes my mind before bed.

I’ll drink a few more, but I don’t want to be up all night peeing, so we’ll see how far I get.

Sil

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!
