I think I’m taking the day off from sipdowns.
I just got home from the wedding, & I’m extremely exhausted. When I play at the botanical garden, I have to walk for about 15 – 30 minutes, pushing the harp on its dolly. My son Leif comes with me, to carry my bench, etc. I took a zyrtek before I went, because they have every kind of pollen all in one place there, but now I can barely keep my eyes open. There are a few other things I could complain about, but I’ll quit now. ;)
Anyway, I’m tea deprived, that’s the main thing, so I’m treating myself to a steep & resteep of this awesome tea. I’m almost done with the 2nd cup. I also need food, & little terri is over in the corner, talking to one of her imaginary friends about how much she wants pancakes…

Sil

mmm pancakes…

Terri HarpLady

I know, right?
Only I can’t get myself to cook, so I think I’m gonna call the sushi place, place a carryout order, & pick that up on the way to the college. Once I unload the harp, I’ll have some time to kill, so I can see myself kicked back in my car with chopsticks :)

Terri HarpLady

Maybe I’ll have pancakes for breakfast tomorrow…or for a late night snack!

Sil

i’m stuck in a room with 50+ ohter ppl for the next 12-16 hours in the middle of nowhere… dinner and other such things will not be delicious

boychik

Sil

boychik

Terri HarpLady

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!
