drank Lady Devotea by The Devotea
2479 tasting notes

I’ve said in the past that I’m not a big fan of bergamot in my tea, & even less of a fan of lavender (except in my garden, pillow, & bubble bath). Occasionally there are exceptions, & this might be one of them. I steeped a cup for Tony, since he adores these kinds of teas. He loves it! :)
I took a few sips, & admittedly, it is very nicely done! Although it’s not something I’d drink regularly myself, I have to admit that an occasional sip from Tony’s cup might be nice from time to time. The bergamot takes a real back seat here, with the orange being upfront & juicy. The lavender was included, but very judiciously, so that (I can’t believe I’m saying this Sil) it enhances the orange just right.
Tony & I both agree that the base is a little weak, but perhaps I undertea-ed it a little.
Then again, she is a lady.
Of course, some people would say I’m a lady too, but I’m probably not as refined as she was. ;)

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!
