“What a lovely way to start my day! Thank you for bringing me a cup of this, little terri” Ms Theresa said, in an unually good mood.

Little terri just smiled. And sipped. She knows a good thing.

Little terri is just trying to butter her up, lol. We saw an olive tree (yes, the kind the grows real olives that you can cure & eat), & it’s an adorable dwarf that will be perfect with the dwarf kumquat, meyer lemon, & key lime trees that we already have in our collection. Hopefully I can fit it into my sunroom, because after basking in the glory of summer, they all come in for the winter, & it is starting to get a little crowded back there. I also want a ‘tea’ tree, because wouldn’t it be fun to grow your own real tea? I already have a bunch of tisanes in the yard, why not a little tea tree too? I love my little dwarf trees! I ate the last ripe kumquat yesterday, but there will be a bunch of them ripening right around the holidaze, along with the lemons. I have TOO many key limes, I need to start using them more often because that tree blooms like crazy (& has terrible thorns). So, yeah, we’re buttering her up so we can buy that olive tree.

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!
