I’m finally eating breakfast!
I stepped out the back door, dug up a sweet potato & a red onion, picked a couple of poblano chilis (this year’s poblanos are crazy hot!), & made a bowl of breakfast hash, more or less, topped with a couple strips of bacon & eggs. This will hold me for hours!
Meanwhile, I drank this tea while cooking & contemplating my new book idea & Stacy’s contests. I have an idea for a tea, but it requires a smokey base, so it probably won’t happen :/

The truth is, I’ve already won the jackpot with this Irish breakfast, which wasn’t my idea, but is a perfectly bold & delicious breakfast blend! Thanks again Stacy!

Butiki Teas

Well, I believe we could do a smokey base. I’m pretty sure I can acquire a variety of smoke flavors (ex. pine smoke, oak, cedar, etc).

I’m intrigued by the smokey tea idea :)

Barbeque flavor! Hey, if it works for chips…

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!
