Hey Sil, did your TTC order come yet? I think you’re gonna love the samples I’ll be sending you from mine, because I think I’m gonna love them! Since we love most of the same teas…well, except for that Jin Jun Mei thing…& the occasional floral…heh… ;)

So this was my first tea of the day, & I want to thank my tea sister Sil for turning me on to this company. It was fun going a little nuts during their recent sale, but I didn’t really go any more nuts than I usually do. I’m really looking forward to trying some of the sample sized I bought, & I got enough of this lovely black tea to enjoy for a little while. It’s a very sweet & fruity tea, perhaps not as bold as some of the teas I love, but unique & tasty in it’s own right.
I steeped 1 Tbls in my mug for 4 minutes, resteeped for 6. The resteep is, or course, not as exciting as the original cup, but still flavorful in it’s own way. To this tea I say, “Welcome to my collection!”

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!
