Oh look, black dragon pearl is finally back at Teavana!!
Of course, I have to add it back into my collection, as theirs was the first black pearl I ever had, and loved. After yesterday’s gig, I gave myself permission to go to Teavana & get some.
I really liked Teavana when they first opened. Now they are just too intense on the salesmanship. Someone immediately attached herself to me, leading me around the store, pouring samples, pointing things out, spouting her knowledge, & depositing me at the counter with the overly smiley lady, where I asked for 4 oz of dragon pearls.
She intentionally over scooped, & then nonchalantly asked, “is 6 oz ok?”
“No”
She fixed it. I also got a couple oz of the peach one I like, & she did the exact same thing.
On the way out of the store some chick was giving a demo about their current special: but a cast iron teapot & you get a bunch of free tea. She tried to pull me in, “I already have 2”, I said, making for the door…I escaped!

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!
