Visiting Tin Roof Teas in Raleigh, North Carolina!
Angela of Tea with Friends shared a fun post about her visit to a cute tea shop in NC. They'll definitely be on my to do list if I ever visit the area.
BST! - Sencha
+Tyas Huybrechts of +Tea Talk created an awesome downloadable PDF about brewing the perfect cup of sencha. I love that he includes detailed directions for each infusion.
Learning to (Re)Wrap a Teacake
One tea skill that I have yet to master is re-wrapping puerh cakes. I'll have to study this post carefully and put in some time practicing. It kind of reminds me of learning how to do origami.
Matcha Tools and Preparation
+Georgia SS at Notes on Tea recently attended a matcha event in NYC. As a great follow up, she shared beautiful pictures as well as notes on how to prepare a frothy bowl of the green stuff.
The Taste of Tea Lounge
+Ricardo Caicedo visited what sounds like a wonderful place in Healdsburg, CA while he was here for World Tea Expo. I really don't know if I could imagine anything better than a tea house that serves ramen and does spa treatments.
