Another Blends Club tea from Sil.
I don’t hate this one, & I feel like I should love it, because it has so many of my favorite herbs in it:
Burdock – I actually eat burdock root in stir fried & stews, & it’s regularly featured in my homemade root kimchi concoction.
Elderberry – How I love my Elderberry tea, my favorite anti-viral, so much so that I planted 4 bushes this spring, although none of them are showing any signs of life so far… I think I may have to contact the plant place, because I think they sent me dead bushes.
Lemon Verbena – the aroma of lemon verbena used to be a popular perfume. It’s the best aroma therapy I know, which is why I have it growing in my herb garden.
Lemongrass – I usually grow it too, although I haven’t planted any yet this year.
Rooibos – meh
Tulsi – double meh

Anyway, I’m not really in love with it, but this is an ok blend. I can’t really think of anything else to say, except I can taste all of those herbs in there. None of them really stand out, so I guess I can say they are pretty well blended, right?

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!
