Friday Roundup: July 2nd - July 8th

Umami Cafe (Portland Japanese Garden)
Heather at Hanamichi gives us a tour on the excellent cafe located at the Japanese garden in Portland. I'd love to have a place like to grab tea, especially with such beautiful surroundings.

2016 Nightlife from White2Tea
Char at Oolong Owl reviewed a tea that has been on my wishlist since last year. Moonlight whites are some of my favorite teas, especially when they are compressed like this one. The 2016 is long gone but thankfully there is a 2017 version up for grabs.

Fresh Matcha at O'Sulloc Tea Museum on Jeju Island, South Korea
Mel Had Tea told us all about the tea museum that she visited on a trip to South Korea. There are so many tea places that I want to travel to. Jeju Island is most definitely on the list!

A review of Camellia Sinensis, Montreal and Quebec City
Speaking of tea places I'd like to visit, Daisy at A Tea Girl's Journal reviewed two of Camellia Sinensis' locations in Canada. I loved that she was able to compare the two experiences (and the idea of a technology free tea shop).

Crimson Lotus Gongfu2go and 2013 Xiaguan Shou Puerh
Tea-Tography posted a dual review featuring both a Xiaguan shou and a brewing device from puerh community favorite Crimson Lotus Tea. There's great photography as always plus I've always wanted to see the Gongfu2go in action. Unfortunately, they've now been discontinued.
