Friday Round Up: March 15th - March 21st

Tung Ting Oolong
I love finding new tea blogs to follow (hence why I started this round up). What I love even more is finding one written by a 15 year old who writes some amazing tea inspired poetry.

Notes on tea - Teatulia
Teascopia, written by tea sommelier Gabriella, is definitely one of the most beautiful blogs out there. In this post she gives a succinct review of three of +Teatulia Tea's offerings.

A Matcha Comparison
Lu Ann at +The Cup Of Life posted a really interesting comparison of four different matchas from her tea stash. I love that she doesn't reveal the brands. It puts the focus on the tea!

The Littlest Critic Visits: Podunk
+sara shacket's daughter is quite the opinionated little tea drinker. I recommended that they try visiting Podunk and I was so happy to read that she enjoyed herself. It may not be NYC's most popular or trendy afternoon tea spot but their food is delicious.

Tea as Meditation
+Payton Swick shared a thought provoking post about using tea as a meditation object. Tea really does lend itself to ritual and mindfulness. I love the beautiful photographs of his Cha Xi too.
