I’ve been busy today – made corn muffins that just came out of the oven that I plan to have with the black eyed peas I’ll make tomorrow. I decided to have one of the corn muffins along with this tea. The flavoring isn’t as strong as it used to be, but that’s because it’s taken me a while to drink it. :)

I also wrote a new blog post about tea in Baltimore if anyone wants to read it:

I always used to make black eyed peas for new years, it’s part of the tradition in the African American community to do so and my life has been part of this tradition for 45 years. Now…I’m allergic to beans. I’ll have to make sweet potato pie instead for family (but I do miss beans and especially these black eyed peas at New Years)! Happy 2013 Amy!

Allergic to beans? Oh no! I would hate that!
Happy 2013 to you as well Bonnie! :)

Profile

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
