Sipdown #33!
It’s official, all of my students for the day (from 10am to 8pm) rescheduled their lessons. I guess we actually got about 6 inches of snow, so it’s no surprise. Meanwhile, I feel like I haven’t done anything of any real value today, although I did talk to a new student on the phone & set up her first lesson for this friday. I did a ‘Facetime’ lesson with one of my students so we wouldn’t have to schedule a makeup (which actually works out pretty good!), I returned phone calls & emails, shuffled papers around on my desk, and I drank a lot of tea! I have $75 in Amazon gift cards from my recent birthday, & I’ve been researching which variable temp electric kettle I want, cuz I really need one! I’m open for suggestions.

My newest batch of Root Kimchi is the best tasting, crispiest batch yet. If you’d like to see it, drop by my FB https://www.facebook.com/terri.langerak

This is from Autumn of 2012, by the way. It still tastes pretty good, but now it’s gone!

I love the kimchi updates!

I tried to cut each of the different veggies into their own shapes, just for fun. The burdock is in little matchsticks, the red radishes are whole with greens attached, the turnip is in triangles, the daikon in cubes, lol. I used to be really good at making carrot flowers, but now they are clumsy looking. No matter, it’s tasty! I’ll share small jars with a few people, & it will make them smile :)

Wow, that snow can really throw a person through a loop, eh? That’s really generous of you to do Facetime sessions. :)

To be fair, some of my students do have a 45 – 60 minute drive to come for their lessons, so I don’t blame them for staying home! Stephanie, you & I will have matching teapots! I just ordered it! :)

Boychik, I promise the recipe tomorrow, which is really later today, LOL. I need to go to bed!

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!
