drank Black Beauty by Mandala Tea
2913 tasting notes

What goes together better than hot tea & a long hot bath?

I think this is my favorite of all of Mandala’s Black tea offerings. It is SO sweet, rich, & delicious. So satisfying. I’ve written several reviews of it already, so I won’t go on & on, except to say I’m grateful to enjoy a cup, & I should do so more often.

Great! Now I want to take a bath and drink this tea. Except I’m at the shop. Could use a hot bath. It’s 15 below 0 here and windy. Yowza! So happy you enjoy this tea. I love it when I get to bag a bunch up for the aroma of even the dried leaf is so purdy! Enjoy, my friend!!

15 below? Geez, glad I don’t live in Minnesota! I think our overnight low in St. Louis was 5 degrees (above O), our high of the day was 15. Hanging around with my friends on Steepster has taught me not to complain about how cold it is, LOL.

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!
