I might be the official steepster slacker, at least for now. I’m so behind on posts, & on readings posts, so this post will be an attempt to catch up, Hahaha.
I haven’t posted anything for a day or two, so here’s a summary of the teas I’ve been drinking:
Double Knit Blend – A & D
Tiger Assam – A & D
Pumpkin Milkshake – Butiki
Two Tigers – Devotea
Champagne & Rose cream – Butiki
OK…I think that covers yesterday, & possibly the day before…I can’t remember for sure. There may have been a few others, but these are the ones whose packages were piled on the corner of my desk to remind me to comment on them. Now they are put away.

As for the Black Lotus, I have been tea-deprived today, which I will comment on in my next post, but let’s just say I really really needed something, & this one did the trick. It’s funny, because sometimes this tea seems so bright to me, & even today, looking at the leaf, a part of me was moaning, “That’s a lot of darjeeling!”.
LOL, I can’t always drink this one in the morning, but it was perfect with lunch. I needed a real pick me up, & this did the trick!

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!
