Friday Round Up: April 5th - April 11th

Some 1860's directions for making tea
Angela of Tea with Friends made a very interesting find in an old cook book. Who ever heard of a gill of water? Now you know :)

TeaDB Special! [Episode 100]
The guys at +Tea DB celebrated a very special milestone this week, their 100th episode! I'd like to send a big congrats to Denny and James.

Matcha No Bake Granola Bars
Believe it or not, I love granola bars. This no bake recipe from Inspired by Tea definitely caught my attention. I love that it incorporates matcha. I'll definitely be giving these a try soon.

A"Bit" about Qi
Cwyn's Death By Tea wrote a lengthy and very intriguing post about the concept of qi in tea. This is something that is often debated but I've rarely seen a clear conclusion drawn.

Steep! In the Name of Love!
Dinah at A Chomp At Life wrote a beautiful post comparing western style brewing with gongfu and Moroccan style brewing. This is a great place for tea newbies to start to get a handle on the different brewing methods.
