We’re in full storm mode today, which I’m rather enjoying, to be honest. I tend to like chaotic weather, although it makes me feel lazy & just want to sleep, or lay in bed reading. I went to bed this morning at 1am, only to awaken at 5:30 to the sound of tornado alarms going off in a distant neighborhood. Gradually closer alarms went off, & then they gradually faded. I consulted my weather app, & apparently a tornado touched down in U City, which is about 3 or 4 miles north of my neighborhood. Otherwise we all had fairly strong winds, rain, & hail. No damage done here. Not sure about U (that’s University) City, but I’ll check in with friends up there.

I almost got up, thinking “now I’m awake”, but I ended up going back to sleep & not waking up until 9:40!! I start teaching at 10, so this was my first teapot of the day, something strong & bold to awaken my groggy mind & senses, & it was good!

Storms! I miss storms, we are still in winter mode up here haha, no storms until around June, I don’t mind them as long as they are not severe and don’t cause damage. Oh and no tornadoes!

I so did not want to go to work today. Lovely thunder all night and rain most of the day.

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!
