I only have a few minutes between students, so I’m cramming several sipdowns into this post. The first one is from KS.
Affair of Shui Xian & Rou Gui – Life in Teacup
I know it is lame of me to post it here, but there isn’t an entry for it, & I don’t really have time to create one. So lets just say that I’ve been drinking it for a few hours, & since I do enjoy both Rou Gui & Shui Xian oolongs, it’s no surprise that I also enjoyed this one, which features a blend of both.

My other sipdowns (so far) for today are not true sipdowns, as I’m not drinking the teas, I’m sending them on to a friend, but I’m still counting them because I’ve drank them plenty of times before, & they will no longer be in my cupboard:
Longyuanhao Yiwu Limited Pressing 06 – Verdant
Haixintang 06 Stone Pressed Sheng
Moonlight White Pressed Cake
Tian de Ren Bulang 06 Sheng
First picking Budset Jingshan Green
He family 2st picking Laoshan green
Ms Li’s 1st picking shi feng dragonwell
he family Hand pressed 1st picking laoshan green
Only 336 teas to go!
Oh! & autumn harvest laoshan green, so make that 335!

Turns out I DID have the autumn green, it was a sample, hiding behind something else :)

Apparently I didn’t even review this one on Steepster. I have it on my blog and liked it. Procrastinators unite – tomorrow or day after for sure.

Ooh, the Tian De Ren Bulang 06 Sheng was my introduction to pu’erh, and I really liked the complexity of flavours in that one. Your friend is in for a treat!

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!
