A tasty treat from Sil!
Thanks!!

Shelley_Lorraine

gee, what kind of a tasting note is that? ;)

Terri HarpLady

I know I should offer more description, but all I can say is this: One of my students has a french au pair nanny who brings her to her lessons. I might ask her to pick up some of this when she goes home for a visit. We’ve had some nice conversaions about tea, & what a wonderful company mariage Freres is.

Sil

I figured she was saving her. Words for nanothingingmajiggy

Shelley_Lorraine

I’m just used to more words here from Terri, granted they are usually more about gardening and music than about the tea. . but hey it’s something! I just like to give her a hard time :)

Terri HarpLady

Ughghgh I’m so behind on my NaNoWriMo project. I hate to think it, but I might not finish by the 30th this year…I’m just above 12000 words. There is still a bunch of music to prepare for upcoming concerts, including one tomorrow! Oh well, thus is life…

Sil

shelley – agreed..it was either that or she REALLY hated the tea and didn’t want me to know since it’s one of my favourite chocolate teas ever…

Terri HarpLady

LOL, I loved it. Did you read the part about getting the nanny to try to get some when she’s in france? LOL

Sil

yes but THAT wasn’t in the tasting note

Shelley_Lorraine

alright you two, get along :p

Sil

always… as much as a pain in the ass little sister can with her big bossy older sister grin

Shelley_Lorraine

Hey!! I’m the oldest sister and I’m my littlest sister’s favorite! (^o^)
ok, I’ll shut up now. But I expect more entertaining notes from Terri in the future!

Terri HarpLady

I’ll do my best! LOL!
Sil, I think you’re the same age as my oldest daughter, so theoretically, I could be your mother!
But I like being sisters better!
Shelley, I’m also the oldest sister. One of my sisters is on Steepster, MsWhatsit. The youngest sister is not, but I think eventually she might be.

Shelley_Lorraine

The sister of whom I spoke is on here too, but not active. she drinks tea b/c I drink tea and she joined steepster b/c Im on Steepster (sweet little 15y/o protégé she is) but I coudln’t get her motivated to keep a tea log. She has a single tasting note. But she reads mine sometimes. she is ‘mountainfountain’ with an avatar of her super creepily cute cat ( the archetypal cat of so-cute-its-scary).

Sil

Terri…i have one pain in the ass mother…don’t need a second one giggling I have no siblings!

Terri HarpLady

That’s good, cuz being a mom sometimes gets a little old. Especially with 3 of my adult children living here with me.
I’m much happier being a sister!! So we will continue on as Tea Sibblings, LOL.

Sil

haha love you lady! hug

Terri HarpLady

Back at ya!

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!
