Why am I awake so early on a Saturday morning? …yawn…
Because Tony & his best friend Deer Hunter Dan are going to Cabela’s.
It’s bow hunting season, & Dan decided his 20 year old bow needs to be replaced. I was gonna loll around in bed alone, but I figured I might as well get up, work on my nanowrimo novel for a couple hours, treat myself to brekkie, & then I have a client coming at 2:00 to plan a wedding.

So I’m sitting here, bleary eyed, yawning, with bed-head, and the final cup of this tea, Sil’s contribution to the BBBB. It’s bold, with an almost coffee-like bass note. It is also fairly astringent, & this morning I can almost hear a trumpet playing revely in the frozen campground of my mind. I can also feel the caffeine rising in my bloodstream. Sipdown! I’d like to get down to 200 teas by the end of the weekend.

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!
