My 2nd cup of this tea, this time I prepared it in the same way I’ve been preparing Chai (thank you, Robert Godden), simmered gently in a mix of canned coconut milk & vanilla almond milk. So decadent, so delicious. While I was simmering I was mixing up this recipe for Coconut Chia Pudding:
(I dare you to look at the pics…OMG)
Mine will be served (mostly to myself) with an optional drizzle of maple syrup, & a strong cup of some black tea, tomorrow morning for breakfast.
I went ahead and roasted the squash tonight, along with toasting the coconut flakes. To be honest, I love squash roasted this way, & it was everything I could do to keep from just nomming down the whole pan tonight. I did exercise restraint, but allowed myself a few delicious bites, then I put it away & drank my tea.
This delicious & decadent cup of tea.

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!
