Now that the weather is cooling down, the boys are drinking more tea again, reminiscing about our past Adagio fandom orders, & all that. Drew has all of his classes on Mon, Wed, & Fri. Leif’s classes are on Tues & Thurs. Everyone has been fending for themselves for breakfasts lately (we have a rule in my house, which I call, “Find it, Kill it, Cook it, & Eat it”. Of course, nobody in this house is killing anything, but we have had that rule for a long time, & all of my kids know how to fix food because of it). Leif is on ‘Fall Break’ from his college, so the 3 of us had a nice breakfast together, which included a huge sweet potato that I dug up yesterday! Leif selected this tea & brewed a big pot, which we all enjoyed. It’s a light tasting cup, with a very bright, tart, & fruity flavor. I still haven’t tried it iced, but I bet it would be tasty that way.

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!
