I guess I’m in a Keemun mood today!
Maybe because it’s a satisfying no-nonsense type of tea that I can just make a cup or pot of & enjoy, without too much effort.
Yeah, I think that might be it!

“I guess I’m in a Keemun mood today!” “… it’s a satisfying no-nonsense type of tea …” I completely understand!

How do you brew this? I’ve heard up to 7 minutes and being shy on leaf.

I think that’s why Keemuns are my favorite! They are dependable, like a nice comfy warm sweater.

I looooove Keemuns too

LooseT – I’ll have to check that out later!
Dag – With this one I used 1 tsp to 8oz X 4min, however, with teavivre’s hao ya, I used 2 tsp + 8oz X 2min. I also drank butiki’s congou keemun @ 2 tsp + 8oz X 3. They were all delicious, but for the day, I enjoyed the teavivre version the most.

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!
