I’m having a really nice leisurely day with my man, Tony. I drank this tea while I was fixing breakfast, & sadly, I’m still having a hypersensitivity to bitterness, so it wasn’t as fruity & tasty as I know it to be.

I’m having a bit of a weird taste thing going on today as well. Everything tastes astringent and slightly weird.

Allergies do it to me every year. They also effect by digestion.

I started out ok with mt first cup of tea – but since then, everything has tasted weird and I’ve had an odd astringent thing. Which makes me sad because I was gonna gong fu a bunch of pu today :(

I hate to ruin a good tea by not being able to enjoy it properly.

Yeah I just stopped with tea for today. Gonna see if a big strong cup of coffee hits the reset button at all. I have wicked allergies going on as well, so maybe that’s it.

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!
