Friday Round Up: June 28th - July 4th

The T Project Grand Opening
I received an email about the grand opening for a very interesting new place but was disheartened to see that they were located on the west coast. Why do they get all of the cool places? Thankfully I was able to live vicariously through the adventures of +Geoffrey Norman.

Japanese Oriental Beauty
But Tea is the blog of few words but many beautiful pictures. I was totally drawn into this post about a Japanese take on Oriental Beauty.

Drying in Tea Processing
+Tony Gebely from +World of Tea gave us some great insights into the drying step of tea processing. It can often be hard for tea drinkers to visualize how this works, especially with the conflicting information that can be found out there.

A Green Tea Yogurt Treat
+Darlene Meyers-Perry and I must have been on the same wavelength this week. She added matcha to vanilla yogurt and I added it to vanilla pudding. I'll definitely be giving her method a try very soon.

American Sparkling Soda
I always look forward to reading +Bonnie Eng's innovative recipes. This festive sip is perfect for celebrating the 4th of July. I love that she did not use any food coloring to achieve the cool layering affect.
