A few days ago I was musing on reading leaves, & commented that the leaves in my cup formed the shape of a seagull, & that a bird symbolizes the arrival of a message or package. Wouldn’t ya know, that very day I received my tea trade from Spencer!. Also, that very same day, the box Sil had sent to me over a month ago, which we were both mourning the loss of & were convinced that it was lost, was returned to her. So maybe I have a future reading tea leaves? :D

I’d just like to say that Spencer is an interesting dude! I posted a pic of the box he sent on my FB https://www.facebook.com/terri.langerak

And I am really enjoying this tea! The combination of Jin Jun Mei (which I love), with ceylon (which I’m not entirely crazy about, but will drink, & besides, it’s not too prominent here), & Malty Assam? Yeah, Baby, oh yeah! Thanks, Spencer! This is my first tea from Pete’s, & I’ll definitely be looking to grab more of this one!

I swear there used to be a storefront Peet’s in Vancouver, however I’m struggling to find it now. You can order from their website though, and it’s USPS shipping. http://www.peets.com/tea.html

@Sil – Peet’s is a US coffee/tea chain, I don’t think they have any stores in canada but I could be wrong

Terri HarpLady

Amy, I would love that!
This anniversary blend is very tasty, IMO, especially if you enjoy Jin Jun Mei, which I do.
Sil…looks like it may be time for us to split orders again…:)

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!
