Since I polished off the teas from last January’s TOMC, I figured I might as well back track to November of 2012, right? There were 3 selections in that box, with the first one being this 2012 autumn laoshan green. It may be over a year old, but it is still every bit as delicious as it was when it first arrived. Initially it has that classic Laoshan green brean kind of taste, but in the later steepings it takes on a buttery winter squash taste, & a sweet & creamy oatmeal quality as well. It’s like a savory bowl of oatmeal with soymilk or maybe almond milk drizzled over the top.
I don’t know why I don’t drink these green teas more often. The ones from Laoshan village are so amazing!

Additional comments: The November 2012 box also included a package of Minnesota Northern Lakes Wild Rice, and adding a pinch to this tea makes the most wonderful Genmaicha. Just sayin’

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!
