Friday Round Up: August 30th - September 5th

August Round Up: The Most Interesting Blogs this Month
Is tea-ception to feature a round up on my round up? +Lu Ann Pannunzio has been curating a great collection of links every month. I love how she breaks them into thematic categories.

The Singphou, Chief of Bissa Gamm
I've been avidly reading a new site called The Tea Afficionados Project. This interview the modern-day chief of the tribe that is often credited with discovering wild tea in Assam (depending on who you ask).

Tomotcha Subscription
I thought that I had heard of all of the tea subscription services out there but Marzipan at TeaLover.net introduced me to a new one that focuses solely on Japanese teas. How fun is that gyokyro breathing dragon picture?

TEA REVIEW: Global Tea Hut – Summer 2015, “Elevation”: Big-leaf Red Tea, Sun Moon Lake, Taiwan
+Drew Bednasek had an opportunity to give +Global Tea Hut thanks to +Cardiff in a Tea Cup. I have yet to drive into my Elevation but his post tells me that it will be just as amazing as last year's. The work that they do is so important!

Women in Tea: She Works Hard for the Money
Tea is My Name penned a thought provoking post on human rights issues that are associated with tea. She provides lots of food for thought as well as links for future reading.
