Friday Roundup: November 5th - November 11th

Sara, Georgia, and Jee present green teas and mochi cakes

Virginia's Pairteas is a new to me blog that I discovered when she wrote about a pairing that some of my tea friends did together. The science of taste is absolutely fascinating and she does a great job of making it easy to understand.

Puerh Wrapping Paper. The art of manufacturing paper to pack Puerh. Manzhao Village, Yunnan

Gixlovestea is another blog that I just discovered this week. I was drawn in by this post about how the paper for puerh wrappers is made. I've read about the process before but the pictures and video make it so much more clear.

2017 Vancouver Tea Festival: Recap

Michelle at One More Steep wrote a thorough and very enjoyable recap of her experience at the Vancouver Tea Festival. The pictures she included of the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden are beautiful as well. This is one Canadian event, among others, that is definitely on my wish list.

Royal Botanical Gardens Tea Festival 2017 Recap and Thoughts

Speaking of Canadian tea festivals, Lu Ann at The Cup of Life posted a recap of her own. The 2nd annual Royal Botanical Gardens Tea Festival sounds like such a great time. I really wish I could have been there to see her presentation.

Tony at World of Tea recently traveled to Sri Lanka so we've been treated to some really great content on Ceylon tea. This week he walks us through some of the more unusual offerings that can be found there. I'm partial to those from Lumbini Estate, especially the rings and flower bud shaped leaves.
