Another tea from Sil.
I think these are the first teas I’ve sampled from PureAroma teas.
I love the aroma of this tea, and I do sometimes enjoy some florals in my teas, so that should come as no surprise. Flavor wise, it’s ok & drinkable, but near the end of the cup there was a less pleasant soapiness to the aftertaste. :p

Sil

Mmmmm soap…

From my most recent ‘monster box’ from Sil, LOL.
First cup of the day, & it’s a rich & potent one. The only downside is a slight metallic flavor lingering around on my tongue. Breakfast will probably take care of that though.

Terri HarpLady

Glad to be able to inspire!

Due to a recent shared order from the teaspot, I have plenty of this now!

Sil

I want! Want! Want!

Sil

Also on that note…5$ says ill be approaching 300 again when I get home and all my orders are out – ie. one more butiki order to place, possibly a verdant to try the new blends, our tea box, the teaspot order….uh was there more? Also TEB owes me a box someday, though I’m not fussed about when it gets here…

Terri HarpLady

Yep! HAHAHAHAHAHA!
I just realized, I didn’t mail the Box off today…sigh…

This is SO GOOD!
I could sit around drinking this forever.
It’s so very rich, with a chocolatey fruitiness that is YUM!
I haven’t been drinking much in the way of oolongs or puerhs, as my taste buds weren’t working, the water in florida sucks, & I wasn’t really feeling very good anyway.
THAT’s OVER!
Even though I’m still congested, I can taste & smell enough now to totally appreciate my more nuanced teas, such as this one.
I don’t yet have a favorite wuyi oolong, but there are several contenders here, & this is definitely one of them!

Not a favorite
but worth trying none the less
now it’s gone, sipdown.

Cavocorax

Haha. I love it!
If I wasn’t totally addicted to Doodle Or Die, I would try reviewing teas in Haiku, but maybe another day.

Terri HarpLady

My son Drew was really into doodle or die for awhile

First cup of the day, one more cup to celebrate Stacy’s birthday, & even though the contest is over, one more Haiku as well:

Lonely lion walks
along the elephant road
golden in the sun.

Life can be bitter
and yet bitter reveals sweet
Life is bittersweet

Butiki Teas

I love your haikus! :)

Terri HarpLady

Thanks Stacy!
So…does the sale end at midnight tonight?
I only ask because I’m headed out the door to play a gig & still haven’t completed my order… I don’t want to miss out!

Butiki Teas

It does end at midnight, but no worries if you are a little late. We make some exceptions for long standing customers.

Terri HarpLady

That’s because you’re awesome!

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!
