This is a sample sent to me from Sil, who got it from OMGsrsly.
Aged cedar, peatmoss, shroom compost…
There is also an underlying sweetness & a hint of chocolate milk…
and a potent camphor effect, immediately felt in my sinuses…
I’m having horrible horrible allergies, in spite of all my efforts to the contrary…not the kind of allergies where your sinuses are stuffed full of gunk, I don’t usually get stuffed up in my head, I just feel a throbbing pain instead (yeah, I know, that rhymed, unintentionally, I might add, but when you’re a songwriter these things happen automatically).
Anyway, I’m leaving tomorrow for the annual pilgrimage to visit my parents in Orlando, FL (they are in Apopka actually) & as bad as my allergies are at home, they will no doubt be worse in FL, it is always so.
This tea is actually helpful in releasing the pressure on my sinuses.
Most Puerh teas help, so maybe I’ll bring some along for the visit…

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!
