The last time I reviewed this sheng, which was a reserve TOMC for last August, I had just gone into the studio with a local rapper, Spaide Ripper, to record a song called Angels.
Coincidentally, he just contacted me & the CD is almost ready for release, & he’s planning to make a music video, which he wants me to be part of. Cool! I’m not really a huge rap fan, but he’s a pretty cool guy, a family man, & we had a great time in the studio. So, you know I’m in!

I spent most of the morning sipping on steeps of this Sheng & gardening. It’s a smooth & savory one, with a hazelnut butter kind of a taste to it after awhile. The earlier steepings are potent but smooth, with a spicy taste that reminds me a bit of Cannabis, which I haven’t smoked in over 30 years, but did smoke a lot of back in the day, & yes, I inhaled…every time!

What is Cannabis? Some old school type of tea? Sounds interesting. Love spicy tea with unusual names.

Profile

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!
