I enjoyed this tea earlier in the afternoon. It kind of reminds me of Laoshan Black, only less sweet & more dark chocolaty. It is delicious!

I just tried this same tea from Yezi Tea. Funny! Theirs is super tasty too!

I did not need to know that Yunnan Sourcing has good black teas. I’ve really only looked at their pu’erh. I am so not allowed on their site…..

TB: the B box is on it’s way to you with some tasty teas from Yunnan Sourcing. The next couple of rounds will be from them :)
Dex: yeah, I’m not allowed on their either! Don’t tell Ms Theresa, but little terri & I placed another order there this weekend, lol. They have some really fine black teas! Let me know if you want samples :)

Thanks Terri, but my other side is freaking about how much my cupboard just exploded. I need to get a grip on this situation. I placed 7 orders last month, a TTB, and 4 swaps, and there is still a growing list of teas/companies I HAVE to try. Ugggg. I need to drink what I have.
Love how little terri and you out vote Ms. Theresa. I think I need to find a third. LOL there are just two of us arguing….

Truth be told, I placed 3 orders over the weekend: Taiwan tea crafts, yunnan sourcing, & verdant (had to have the new big red robe, ya know?). Now I’m suppose to be on Hiatus, but it’s so hard…lol

Ya I know…. Taiwan Tea Crafts is the big one calling my name right now. Not doing it. They will still be there next month – at least that’s what I have to keep telling myself.

This is why I love our little bbbb. I get a sampling of teas from places I really want to try so I don’t have to buy ALL the tea right away :-)

Terri HarpLady

Yeah, I love our box! I’m drinking one of your teas right now, TB!

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!
