Friday Round Up: December 13th - December 19th

Verdant Tea strikes again
There was a bit of puerh controversy in the online tea world this week. MarshalN of A Tea Addict's Journal does a great job of summarizing it all, separating fact from fiction.

Tea Party in a Box
+Bonnie Eng put together a great collection of DIY gift boxes that any tea lover would be happy to receive. I think the Matcha All Day is my favorite.

Favorite Tea Ware: Heidi Chen of Tea Ave
+Georgia SS continues her favorite tea ware series with an installment from Heidi of +Tea Ave. The long handled gongfu teapot is gorgeous!

An Original Da Hong Pao Oolong Awakening
I've been lucky enough to taste some pretty amazing teas. +Geoffrey Norman almost always one ups me (not that tea drinking is a competitive sport, if it were we'd both be olympians). This rare Da Hong Pao takes the cake and will definitely be on my wishlist.

Muzha Traditional Tieguanyin
Nissan of Knjitea share a fascinating story from his travels in Taiwan. The business side of tea is always fascinating. It seems I've been living vicariously through other people's travels lately. That needs to change!
