I’m just getting started on a yixing session with this tea. There is an orange peel like quality to it that today brings to mind the old Constant Comment, which in my gramma’s house was considered the ‘fancy tea’, lol. That is not to say that this tastes ANYTHING like CC, but it just made me think of it.

Meanwhile, Some of Us were whining yesterday about the last of our zhu rong & running out of Vanilla Citrus Spice, & I just looked at Verdant’s site & they are BACK!!! YEAH!! Guess who is getting ready to order some tea?
little terri says it’s our reward for getting our taxes done, & Ms Theresa just agreed (which is amazing, cuz she can be so disagreeable, especially when it comes to spending money!)

also..zhu rhong chai is up..

caile

I just saw that as well. :)

Terri HarpLady

got some of that too, hahaha, I pretty much loaded up on the flavored teas they have that I love. I also noticed that their description of Zhu rong has changed, which doesn’t surprise me, as it isn’t the same tea they were selling last year, at least not in my opinion, although it’s still tasty :)

Sil

hmmm… i’m not sure i have enough needs to get to free shipping threshold. sigh

I will load up on Zhu Rong Yunnan Black, Silver Buds Yabao, Imperial Breakfast and maybe the Zhu Rong Chai!! But I’m itching to get my hands on at least two ounces of the Golden Fleece Yunnan Black!

Terri HarpLady

Do it, Uji, if you can. It’s lovely for gongfu sessions.

Terri HarpLady

Sil, add a few oz of ..something? Or maybe you can combine orders with Cavo or one of the other Toronto peeps?

Sil

yeah…i think cavo JUST made an order but i’ll have to see if anyone wants anything. I can get to 45 if i have to..but believe it or not that extra 5 is just bordering on stupid amounts of tea lol

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!
