Still my favorite blend from Teavana, & I enjoyed a cup tonight, unsweetened. I really am trying to start winding down a little earlier each night, although in all honesty, I haven’t been all the successful so far.

The aroma of this tea is the best part, it smells so yummy & fruity. I also do enjoy the taste, sweet & a little tart, really almost more like apricot than peach on that regard. There are little pieces of dried fruit that I like to eat, especially the little pieces of pineapple!

i like this one……

This one smelled like fuzzy peaches to me and I was so excited to try it but could never get it to work for me. Hot it seemed too sweet, cold not sweet enough so I gave up trying and gave the rest to a friend who really loves this blend.

Here’s one from the BBBB, compliments of Sil. Thanks Sister!

I drank this straight, but I think next time I’ll sweeten it a bit, & maybe even add a little french vanilla creamer, ala strawberries & cream!
Little Terri is in my head, yelling, “I want more tea!!!”, like a little brat. The truth is, I do want more tea, but I need to make my next cup something without caffeine, so I can go to bed early, or at least at a reasonable hour tonight.

i liked this one cold…

I could see that it would make for a nice refreshing cold brew :)

This is one of the teas that I got in my recent Teavivre order, & I’m glad I did! I love their superfine org keemun, & I wanted to get some of this one, as well as samples of the Keemun Grades 1 & 2, so that I can eventually compare them all.

This one is robust, & I’d even go as far as to say it’s manly, in that the flavor is bold, thick, & husky! I like it! There’s a musky kind of grapiness to it, & a deep forest floor earthiness. I think I might love it. There is also some smoke, but not SO much, just some. It’s a beautifully balanced cup that is much more assertive than the superfine organic keemun, but also not as sweet. I’d say that this one is the yang to the other one’s yin, if you know what I mean.
He’s a rugged, nicely bearded, good looking, outdoors kind of guy, who likes to fire up his smoker.

Yay!!! The BBBB arrived! TastyBrew & Sil, you ladies are awesome!
So, this is my first pick from the box, & I’m not gonna give it away until Sil gets the box, but TB’s packaging is fun & novel :)
I’m enjoying this cup, it’s very smooth & satisfying. It’s also a very evenly balanced cup, no real highs or lows, but a very tasty tea.

TastyBrew

Ha ha. Glad you liked it! I didn’t love this tea as much as I’d hoped, but I haven’t played around with it too much. If you find the perfect parameters, let me know!

Yes, I’m still in love with this tea!

JustJames

you have loved this tea for ages ;0) i’m trying to think whether i’ve seen you romance another tea for this long…… hmmmm

Nightshifter

Yay! My Zhu Rong is in the mail so I should be able to rejoice with you soon. :)

Terri HarpLady

James, I’m pretty sure I love this one more than laoshan black, but then again…
Nightshifter, Yay!!!

Hmmm… I thought I had added this one, but I guess not.
This is a lovely pumpkin Chai, more or less. Very tasty, nicely spiced, & flavored with real dehydrated pumpkin, rather than flavorings. It comes from a local tea shop, & I pretty much bought the last of it, for this year. :)

I’ve been enjoying this final tasty malty cup. Now I need to load up to go play a gig, a christmas concert at the library.
BTW, I know this is shameless self promotion, but if you are a fan of Holidaze music & lullabies, with elements of new age, classical, & jazz, stop by my website & check out my Christmas CD, MidWinter’s Canon. CDs also make great gifts!

“In the Bleak Midwinter” makes me tear up and catch my breath every time I hear it. That was precious. Thanks for posting the link!

Terri HarpLady

Thanks!
I’ve always loved In the Bleak Midwinter. It’s not a well known tune, but so beautiful, & who knew it would combine well with Canon in D?
I have some kind of quirk in my brain that causes me to come up with medleys all the time. I used to do one called Luney Tunes…it started with Clair de lune, & then segued into Blue Moon, Fly me to the Moon, etc, finally going to Moonlight Sonata & then back to the ending of Clair de Lune. It took about 20 minutes to play! LOL
Tonight I thought of another one: The little drummer boy – Ravel’s ‘Bolero’, La Paloma… & I’m still thinking…it’s fun being me!

My Black friday order from the Tea Spot came, & I am having a cup of this. What a great blend, & I’ll have to agree with Sil, this with ginger added? Oh yeah, baby, that would just be the icing on the cake!
My student that likes smokey teas will get a cup of this later in afternoon when he comes for his lesson. Meanwhile, I’m taking this cup to the bubble bath. Here I go!

NofarS

A bubble bath – that sounds like fun! Enjoy.

Terri HarpLady

I never made it…it will have to be tomorrow morning…life!

Big Golden Hairy Buds!
What does it sound like I’m describing to you? Some kind of homegrown?
LOL
I think this is one of the teas I’m going to be sending to my BBB sisters this month. Maybe. It brews up a nice mellow Dian Hong, with that thick kind of mouth. I haven’t tried a gongfu session with it yet, but I plan to. Not as fancy as The Golden Fleece or Mojiang Golden Bud, but very nice just the same & the buds are huge!

Peter

Smoke ’em!

K S

Not sharing… so that means this buds for you? lol

Terri HarpLady

I knew somebody would appreciate my twisted humor :)

I’m not gonna write poetry (like James), although I have been known to on occasion, lol. Let’s just say that this was perfect with a breakfast of scones, bacon, & a little broccoli omelet. And morning is over…already.

Sil

morning over? lady it’s been over for like 2 hours.. lol

JustJames

so mean…. poking fun over a gorgeous tea. lol.

Nightshifter

Must order… :)

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!
