Tony & I are leaving town for the weekend! WooHoo!
We’re headed off to the Original Springs Hotel, which is less than an hour from home. It’s an old Victorian hotel & mineral water spa, with an indoor pool, a pool table, a pretty nice restaurant, & you can get a mineral bath & massage. This was the first place we ever went away together, about 13 or so years ago. We don’t go every year, but it’s so nice to just get away for a few days.

We’re bringing my electric kettle, real cups & strainers, a selection of teas, our pool cues, swimsuits, snacks (cuz we’ll be watching Game 3 of the World Series on Saturday night, followed by Edward Norton on SNL), my Yoga mat, PJs, & a few clothes. R & R, Baby!

He’s picking me up at one, and of course, I have a ton of stuff to do before he gets here, LOL. First up, drink a pot of this tasty blend & send an email announcement to the St. Louis Harp Society (yeah, I’m still president). Onward through the fog….

That sounds so lovely. Those short, easygoing, nostalgia-laced trips focused on rejuvenation are my favorite kind, especially this time of year.

Profile

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!
