I got a sample of this with my recent order, in an effort to have some non-caffeine teas around to drink in the evening. This one is very similar to the other one I drank tonight. Both contain hibiscus, ginger & licorice. The other one also contained rose petals. This one has Valerian, an herb that I happen to love for it’s sleep enhancing effects, although the aroma can be pretty intense. Anyway, this isn’t bad, although the hibiscus is a little bright for my taste.

I’ve just spent the last hour or so going through my main black tea collection (not counting the numerous samples, I keep them in a different place). I had a lot of recycled tea canisters, & part of my project included dusting them out well & refilling them (& relabeling them as needed). I ran out of canisters before I ran out of tea, but it is a start. Some of the canisters carried the aroma of their previous contents, so I didn’t use them. Anyway, it is a start.

My cupboard looks so much better with most of the teas in canisters! Of course, they are all sizes & shapes & colors, with homemade labels slapped on them.

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!
