Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms, past, present, & future!
Everything I’ve drank today is something I’ve reviewed several times, all favorably, so I’m just gonna post a list:
- Imperial Breakfast Blend – Verdant – enjoyed in bed, while reading another tale of Sherlock Holmes, I’m about 80% done with the collection.
- Malty Irish Breakfast – Butiki – with the breakfast Tony made: a scramble of eggs, green onion, asparagus, & lettuce (all from my garden), & a side of bacon. (no pancakes…)
- Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha – Verdant – I made a cup of this to take along & drink during the Mother’s Day Tea I played for at a local nursing home.
- Finbarr’s Revenge – Devotea – I treated myself to a few gluten free cookies & a pot of this tea. A perfect after-the-gig late afternoon pleasure.

I’m not sure what I’m drinking next, but I’m gonna grab something & take it over to Tony’s.


Happy Mothers Day to you too!

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!
