I stayed up late filing a box of samples for my sister, MsWhatsit. There are a few other people I promised tea to (if you’re one of them, you might want to send me a reminder, LOL).
My goal is to get to the post office today, either in the morning or the afternoon, but it’s looking more like afternoon, since I have to be somewhere in an hour. Thus is my life, floating from one activity to another, teacup in hand.

This would be a sipdown, except I already have a refill in the attic (the attic being my bedroom). I love this tea: sweet, malty, slightly floral, a little pepper. The aroma of the dry leaf is hay that’s been trampled a little & warmed by the sun, perhaps along the path at the rennaisance faire. It’s a delicious middle of the staff tea, no heavy bass notes, no shrill instruments, a string quartet of cello, viola, & 2 violins. Smooth & flowing, & easy on the tummy before breakfast.

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!
