I’ve been enjoying this final tasty malty cup. Now I need to load up to go play a gig, a christmas concert at the library.
BTW, I know this is shameless self promotion, but if you are a fan of Holidaze music & lullabies, with elements of new age, classical, & jazz, stop by my website & check out my Christmas CD, MidWinter’s Canon. CDs also make great gifts!

“In the Bleak Midwinter” makes me tear up and catch my breath every time I hear it. That was precious. Thanks for posting the link!

Thanks!
I’ve always loved In the Bleak Midwinter. It’s not a well known tune, but so beautiful, & who knew it would combine well with Canon in D?
I have some kind of quirk in my brain that causes me to come up with medleys all the time. I used to do one called Luney Tunes…it started with Clair de lune, & then segued into Blue Moon, Fly me to the Moon, etc, finally going to Moonlight Sonata & then back to the ending of Clair de Lune. It took about 20 minutes to play! LOL
Tonight I thought of another one: The little drummer boy – Ravel’s ‘Bolero’, La Paloma… & I’m still thinking…it’s fun being me!

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!
