Friday Round Up: May 31st - June 6th

Booze Teas for Boob Teapots
Leave it to +Geoffrey Norman to find a way to combine boobs, booze and tea in the least offensive way possible. This week he shared the story of Xi Shi, a woman so beautiful that her breast is forever commemorated in the shape of a teapot.

A resource for those who love tea and history
Angela at Tea with Friends has knack for finding useful links concerning tea and history. It's pretty hard to trump this 1899 report on growing tea in South Carolina.

Iced Matcha Lemonade
I've seen a few recipes for matcha lemonade but have yet to try making any myself. This recipe from +Oca Ocani at A Matcha Enthusiast's Diary looks super simple. I love that it's just enough for one serving. I'm the only one who will drink this in my house so it doesn't make any sense to make bigger batches,

Beach Season Approved
Speaking of summery drinks, +Rachana Rachel Carter is a tea mad scientist and her latest cocktail recipe sounds awesome. I haven't tried the tea concentrates from Finest Kind Tea yet but they are on my wishlist. I love that she puts a health spin on it, substituting Vee Acai Liqueur for vodka.

teaspoons at the table: strawberry shortcake with cardamom black tea whipped cream
Whenever I need inspiration for tea infused deliciousness I always find myself turning to +Alexis Siemons' fabulous blog. My boyfriend insists that I give her latest recipe a try because it will put the Kitchenaide mixer he bought me to good use. :)
