I’m not going to go into any detailed reviews here, because it’s been a busy day. I managed to have a 2nd cup of tea before I left to play the wedding, a cup of Crimson Horizon.

Short story about the wedding: Usually I play solo, but today I played with trumpet, oboe, guitar, & 2 vocalists. It was a Catholic full mass, & I was suppose to play classical solos for the first 30 minutes while the guests were arriving. Then we all played together, in various combinations. The Oboe player is an older gentleman, & is friends with the bride’s family. He is very good, but maybe a little out in left field? While I was playing my solos, he was messing around with his oboe, making little nasal tweet sounds, with no regard for the solos I was playing. I’ve never had that happen with another musician. I kept thinking maybe I should politely ask him to knock it off, as it was distracting & disrupting. Did he realize I was suppose to be playing? Then the trumpet guy whispers to him, “hey man, why don’t you practice later? She’s playing, ya know?” So he stops, & they are whispering back behind me in the musicians area, which doesn’t bother me at all. Next thing you know, he’s back, making little squacks & sort of half-ass trying to play along with me. I looked over my shoulder at the trumpet guy, he shrugs & mouths, “I tried”.
Thank god, the wedding finally started. I also played a few solos at the end, but he was packing up to leave, so he left me to it.

So rude. :(

Really hard to believe, huh? Why would he be so rude/unaware?

Butiki Teas

Very rude. You would think as a musician he would know better.

Wow, that’s terrible!

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!
