I served this one to my student, D.
It’s a decent afternoon tea, but I wish I’d made something strong & smokey.

I found myself craving something decadently green today, & this really hit the spot! :)

This is one of the teas from my first order with Yunnan Sourcing. I’ve enjoyed it! Speaking of YS, I placed an order with them over a month ago, & it still hasn’t arrived. It was from their China headquarters. Hopefully soon…

Second pot of black tea this morning, & although I have loved this tea originally & still like it, for some reason it hasn’t been as exciting to me the last couple of times I had it. I’m not sure why. I could be that allergies are dulling my senses, or it could be that I’ve become somewhat jaded. Or maybe it’s just that I’m so busy lately I don’t always have time to really appreciate my tea as much. Or maybe all of the above.

I’m working through my teas from Sil. We split an order from Taiwan Tea Crafts awhile back, & even though I placed another order by myself when they had their sale in Oct, I still have some of the original teas, including this one.

I’m feeling kind of like a grumpus, very cynical & crabby. I enjoyed a pot of this while I was fixing breakfast. It’s an interesting, fruity & earthy tea.

Another tea from the BBBB, compliments of TastyBrew.

We finished watching World War Z. It wasn’t as scary as the previews made it out to be. That’s all I’m saying.

Sil

This is one of TastyBrew’s offerings from the first round of the BBBB.
Caramel Apple, good bourbon vanilla, tobacco, & dark chocolate liquoure.
Very Tasty!

We’re watching World War Z.
When I saw the previews, I said I wasn’t going to watch it.
Tony put it on his Netflix list, & now we’re watching it.
It’s very intense.
I need good tea to watch a movie like this.
Thank you TastyBrew.

We’ve been out running around all day. We went to breakfast at our usual haunt, I usually enjoy my breakfast there, but they botched my order. I ate it anyway without complaining (& I’ll admit here that I am one of those nit picky people who usually makes them take it back & remake it).

The tea they serve is Numi Chinese Breakfast. Initially I didn’t mind it, but I feel like everytime I drink it, it gets more anemic, if you know what I mean. I’ve even tried using 2 bags. meh…

Thank god I’m home now! Thank god I brought the BBBBox with me, thank you Sil for saving my day!

Sil

yay!

From the BBBB, thanks to BoxerMama, this is a pleasantly bold morning cup. I thought it would be a sipdown today, but I actually still have enough to drink it one more time, so when I go home this evening I’ll add it to the ‘sipdown’ box.

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!
