Friday Round Up: January 17th - January 23rd

Two Thoughts on Hitting Hard & Buying Hard
James from +Tea DB gave us some great food for thought about buying puerh. I couldn't agree with his thoughts more. Don't cheap out!

My Wintertime Tea Concoctions
+sara shacket shared some great tips on dressing up tea for chilly days. I'll definitely be giving some these a try the next time I'm not feeling well.

A Day at Chariteas
I don't think that I could think of a better way to spend a day than five hours at an awesome tea shop. +Geoffrey Norman did exactly that and I loved reading about it. Chariteas will definitely be on my wishlist if I'm ever in Sandy, OR.

Hakuyoucha: White Leaf Tea
On last week's round up I posted a interesting Japanese tea that +Ricardo Caicedo had written about. As promised, he dug deeper and found some great information on the cultivars that are used to produce "white leaf" tea.

A Bit More Shui Xian
I usually expect to read about puerh when I visit +Cwyn N's blog but this week brought an in depth comparison of several shui xian oolongs. This was a much needed reminder that I need to dive into the shui xian that I purchased from +Joseph Wesley Black Tea recently.
