I don’t know why I don’t drink Dragonwell more often. I used to drink it, & various other greens, daily. I loved green teas so much that I included a line about them in one of my original songs, aptly titled “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song, here’s a link:

Here’s the verse:

in this moment…
note by note
the whole of life.
just this moment
sip by sip
this is life.
Drinking tea, like playing music
subtly alters both mind & mood
from the Sky Between the Branches to the Dragonwell
Journey within, return renewed.”

Of course, back then I was drinking green teas from Rep. of Tea. They were a new company, & the only interesting tea company available in the local stores. They were my first experience with loose leaf tea, & although IMO the quality of their products has declined, or maybe I’ve just developed more refined tastes, I’ll still be forever grateful because their teas were amazing to me back then.

OK…sorry to blather on about other things. This is a lovely Dragonwell, with a nice thick mouth & a ‘yellow’ flavor, & when I say that, I don’t mean it tastes like yellow tea. I’m just getting the color yellow in my weirdly twisted senses. I don’t why I see yellow, because the flavor is VERY green. It’s nicely robust, with a nutty earthiness to it. I don’t know that it’s any more outstanding than the other Long Jings in my collection, but it is satisfying, & there is a brightness, almost a metallic feel (not taste), but not in a bad way, that lingers on the tongue long after the cup is drained.

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!
