I’m logging in from my new & improved office cubicle. Previously my office was on the 2nd floor, & at first I loved it, but for the last several months it’s been a wreck, & I just couldn’t seem to get into spending any time in there. Add the convenience of my laptop, & this poor desktop mac, which really is an awesome computer, has been neglected. So now it is on the ground floor, & I’ve created a cubicle that gives me a certain level of privacy, access to all of my teas & hot water, plants, my fairy figurines, etc. It’s far from being completely unpacked & organized, but my desk, computer, printer, etc are here. I’m gonna give myself a day or 2 off, well deserved, & then start the unpacking and organizing part.

As for the tea, I’m drinking a pot of this while I sit here & enjoy my new space. I don’t always go for this sort of thing, but now that I have my tastebuds back, I’m rather enjoying it! A lively cup of holidaze cheer, heavy on the cinnamon.

Organizing is a little like childbirth—many moans and groans during the process, but it feels soooo good when you’re through!

Yeah, though it may take awhile to finish the project…

Profile

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!
