Just a quick note to log the other teas I drank. I posted them with the app, but received a notice that they didn’t post. I don’t remember the exactly what the note said, but here’s what I drank today (cuz I’m tired, & just too lazy to pull up separate pages on each one):

At the first gig from 7:30 – 9am I had Black Gold (which successfully posted) & Black Beauty (yum). Both from Mandala. I also drank a cup of Elderberry before I left the house, because I was feeling a little bit like I might be getting sick, & since I’m pretty behind on sleep, I figured it might be a good idea. I need to stop by Cheryl’s herbs & get some more.

In between gigs I stopped by the house for 15 minutes to refill my travel mugs & take a few bites of something (I can’t even remember what I ate!)
At the 2nd gig, from 11:15 – 1:15, I drank Irish Breakfast (Butiki) & Teavivre’s Superfine fragrant Keemun.

When I got home I had Hattialli Golden Lion.
I wish I would be giving more details on all of these teas, but lets just say I thoroughly enjoyed them all.

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!
