Final Sipdown of the night, #74.
This tea traveled from Dexter to the Great Canadian TTB (I think), then to Sil, & then to me!
It’s actually fairly tasty, especially with a little sweet added. The flavor of almond is especially nice, but after I took a few sips I was looking at the ingredients list & realized it has Mate in it. Not wanting to stay up past midnight tonight, so as a precaution I dumped the rest of it into a jar & stuck it in the fridge for the night.

As an aside, my ending teacount for the day would have been 342, but I receive a box of samples from a friend, adding 13 new teas to my cupboard, so I’m ending with one tea more than I started with today, LOL, 355. It would be nice to end this week with 300 teas, but I’ll also be happy to complete the goal set earlier today, which was to get through 100 sipdowns (only 25 to go in that case). Really, it doesn’t matter either way, as long as I enjoy the journey!

Terri HarpLady

Me too! It’s like our own little weird history, right?
I also love how the boxes get around. I sent one to KS that came to me from Nofar in Israel, that came to her from Verdant! :)
We’re a bunch of weirdos, LOL!

Sil

yeah.. it’s almost a given that if terri gives me a little extra of some teas, they go in your box and vice versa. Nicole gets a few things here and there, as does Tastybrew and then a few locals/west coasters heh

Terri HarpLady

That just makes it all the more fun!

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!
