Sipdown #3!!

(sorry Sil, I can’t give a ‘numbers of teas left’ count, because that would require me to actually update my list & count all the teas. I promise on Monday I’ll (probably) get around to doing it…or not)

I have to be in the right frame of mind to enjoy this tea. Usually I’m not, but that is not the tea’s fault, as it is a beautiful floral fairie’s delight. Today I’ve been sitting at my desk, answering voicemails & emails, booking weddings, setting up lessons for new students, & next on my agenda is an email that I need to send out to the St. Louis Chapter of the American Harp Society (of which I’m president), announcing our annual tea party, etc.
And I’m drinking this tea! Today it’s very soothing & I almost wish I’d saved it to sip in a bubble bath. For those who love florals, it really is a masterpiece!

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!
