First, it was a great pleasure to see K S on Facebook this morning! Are we Facebook friends? Nope. But Teavivre posted a link to his review of a puerh tea they sent him to try!

Second, tunes&tea, I was planning to start posting what I was listening to now and then and I forgot! So I was listening to The Wind and the Wheat by Phil Keaggy but now I don’t remember what tea I was drinking, but I know I had popcorn so does that count? LOL!

This morning, I am enjoying a nice cuppa, and this is a really authentic cuppa. Daughter’s BF sent a box from Ireland. He was desperately trying to find loose leaf tea and it is sad that it is a hard thing to find in a place that we think of so strongly connected with tea! He said when he comes to America next month for a visit, he is going to get lots of loose leaf tea.

This tea has a rich, complex aroma. There is a light astringency. With food, like the strong cheese we are eating right now, I like it plain. If I were only drinking tea, I think I would want a little milk and perhaps a little sugar. This tea will definitely open your eyes as soon as you give it a good sniff. There is malt, there is raisin, there is TEA! The liquor is rich red brown.

This is a CTC tea so I only give it 2 1/2 minutes in the boiling water. Someone with more chest hair might want to give it a little longer.

Love Phil Keaggy…had that one. I will check my chest and respond accordingly.

Have I sent you any of this one? You need to try it!

gmathis

Don’t think so. It sounds so nicely British!

ashmanra

Consider it on it’s way!

gmathis

Have I told you I love you lately?

K S

I saw the FB post this morning. I feel almost famous. Anyone want an autograph? ;)

ashmanra

Me first! Me first!

gmathis

What’s your autograph going for on eBay these days? ;)

K S

I have a buy now option for one million. I figure I only need to sell one. That makes it even more rare – adding to the value.

I have never owned any Phil Keaggy but I used to listen to his neice Cheri Keaggy. Loved her early stuff.

ashmanra

K S: maybe try Pandora! I especially love his instrumental stuff. He won a Grammy for his guitar skills. When he sings, he sounds so much like Paul McCartney during the Wings years.

gmathis

Just checked..PK is on Pandora. Good. Writing music for a Saturday morning!

Profile

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
