Friday Round Up: October 18th - October 24th

2005 Rocket Yiwu Sheng Pu'er from White2Tea
+Charissa Gascho got wonderfully tea drunk off of a tea that has definitely be on my wish list for a while now. I love all things Yiwu and White2Tea has yet to steer me wrong.

Teacup Votives
Crafty blogger +Bonnie Eng put an interesting twist on the teacup candles that are popping up all over my Pinterest feed. I'm definitely going to have to make a trip to Chinatown soon so that I can give this a try.

Class No.2: Classification of Tea
I learn so much from the posts on Tea Masters Blog, even if I'm not able to attend the classes in person. In this session they brewed three teas all made from the Qingxin Dapang cultivar but with very different oxidation levels.

What-Cha: China Fujian Anxi 2008 Heavy Roasted Tie Guan Yin Oolong Tea in Bitter Melon, A Tea Review
A few weeks ago I shared Oolong Owl's experience with this now famous tea and this week it is +Amanda Wilson's turn. I really enjoyed learning more about bitter melon. I love the pictures in her reviews because they're always full of tea pets and interesting trinkets.

What Makes a Moonlight Tea?
+Geoffrey Norman's obsession with moonlight teas is sort of legendary, especially those that are from Darjeeling. His comparison of these two teas, hilarious and thought provoking as always, had me craving some of my own.
