Welcome to day 27 of little terri’s Ultimate Sipdown Extravaganza!
I haven’t really been quite as productive this past week as I had hoped to be, however I’m now at 301 teas, which is 100 teas less than where I started from on the 1st of May (not counting all the teas that have arrived in the last few weeks, which will be added into my database over this coming week, heh)

There are about 36 teas that I’d like to finish off this week: remnants of tea trades, small samples, remnants of TOMC, etc. I’m only trying to finish off teas that are just one serving left, but I’m still also committed to enjoying every cup! No point rushing through things, right?

With that in mind, I’ve started the day with this wonderful Jin Jun Mei, & although it is the last of the tin, it’s not really a sipdown because I have more. It’s one of those teas who’s warmed leaf aroma alone can make me feel cozy & comforted. It’s rich toasted bread with honey & bee pollen, & I can drink it on an empty stomach!


Impressive sipdown tally! Sip on! ;-)

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!
