This morning my 3 adult live-at-home kids & I fixed a nice breakfast to share. We don’t really celebrate xmas in the traditional sense, but it’s nice to have a family brekkie. On New Year’s Day we’ll have our family celebration to ring in the new year, with my other daughter, Tony & his daughter, my grandkids, etc. Lots of food, a few presents (although we keep that pretty minimal), & lots of laughter, cuz that’s what we’re all about here! There will be the annual family photo by the stairs, which will show up on FB, & a good time will be had by all.

I’m glad to have this robust assam back in my collection. I’m also glad the bitter taste is out of my mouth, because although I don’t mind a little bitterness (to remind me of how sweet life really is), I hate it when everything tastes that way.

Thanks! I’m really grateful that all 4 of my children (aged 30,27,24,& 21) live here in St. Louis, along with my 3 grandkids. Three of my kids live with me, the other one lives a block away. We all have a great time together.

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!
