drank Magic Will by RiverTea
2945 tasting notes

Another tea from Cavo to Sil to me! I’m not sure who Magic Will is, maybe part of Magic Mike’s Male Stripper Review? ;)
I wasn’t really expecting much, to be honest, but this turned out to be a decent little Shu. I brewed it long & proud, lol, & ended up with a very satisfying cup of earthiness, with no objectionable qualities whatsoever. As it cooled, it took on a creamy cocoa quality, which I really enjoyed. I was sipping & practicing my harp for a wedding I’m playing tomorrow at the Missouri Botanical Garden. It’s suppose to be a beautiful day, & this wedding is in my favorite part of the garden, the Chinese Friendship garden. It’s enclosed by a wall, there is a little stream winding through the center, a couple of little bridges, a pagoda, several weeping willows, & if I had time to go hang out at the garden more, that would be my place. Here’s a link:

Special requested pieces for this wedding:
Tangled Up in You
Enchanted
Mine would be you
If I didn’t have you

This is a sipdown, of course! Thanks for the sample, girls!

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!
