At my desk this morning, I already booked a wedding, fielded a series of emails, while drinking a cup of Organic Superfine Keemun from Teavivre. I don’t have anything new to say about it, so I’m just logging it here. During my breakfast break I drank a pot of Red-Tailed Hawk, & I’m sure I should also give it a separate review, but I really need to stay on track & get somethings (taxes) done!

Now I’m drinking this Hand curled Golden Buds Dianhong.
5G + 4oz blue lotus tiny porcelain teapot X 15/30/45 sec….etc

First off, this tea looks exactly like Yunnan Sourcing’s Pure Bud Bi Luo Chun, with roughly the same ratio of gold & everything. YS’s gold is slightly more golden in color, like just a hint of orange to the coloration. Neither one has much in to offer in the dry aroma department, but the wet aroma of these leaves is distinctly that of honey! That’s all I’m going to give by comparison of these 2 teas today, but I have enough of this one to drink it one more time, & I believe a full on comparison will be happening then! Just sayin’ :)

So, this tea IS delicious. It’s honey & cream, honey wheat toast. I think I’m on the 6th steep, & now back to my taxes.


Sounds lovely :)

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!
