One of my adult students came for a lesson after Lisa left & I invited him to pick something from my main tea shelf. He picked this one. He picked the oldest one. This tea has been on my shelf for YEARS, so long that it predates Steepster I think, & R of T probably doesn’t even have it on their website anymore.

Anyway, we shared a pot, & he loved it, so I gave the rest of it to him. Sipdown!

The tea actually still tasted ok. It was bland to begin with, almost like white tea, & it really hasn’t changed much over the years.

haha look at you sneak in a sipdown!

Terri HarpLady

LOL, lets see, who else can I give tea to?

Angrboda

So what was it, then?

Terri HarpLady

LOL, I didn’t even tell you guys what it was? Thanks for pointing that out Angrboda, haha.
It was Champagne Oolong Darjeeling, from Republic of Tea. I had it for years…

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!
