Friday Round Up: October 30th - November 5th

A Sip of Scandal Water
+sara shacket discovered a most unusual afternoon tea service during her recent visit to London. Now this place sounds like it's exactly my style! The Edition Hotel will definitely be on my must-do list for the future.

Gourmet Hojicha Smores
You wouldn't know it by my tea preferences but I have a real sweet tooth. Smores just happen to be one of my favorite indulgences. +Anna Mariani crafted this delicious sounding recipe, including hojicha infused marshmallows.

The wine tasting approach for tea
I always learn so much from +TeaMasters' blog posts. In this one Stephane wrote about a tea class where he and a student shared an incredible sounding aged Oriental Beauty.

Puerh...After a Fashion
+Geoffrey Norman wrote about his experience with the latest offering from +Misty Peak Teas. I can definitely relate to his negative early experiences with cooked puerh. Skip the ponchos, drink the tea. :)

Nagatani Soen: The Inventor of Sencha
There are few bloggers I know that are as knowledgeable about Japanese green tea as +Ricardo Caicedo. In this post, he gives us an extensive history of the man that invented sencha. This is not a story that I've heard before but it is one that I will definitely be bookmarking for future reference,
