Daintree Tea and Tim Tam Slams

Char at Oolong Owl paired Australian grown tea with a sweet treat. She even tried to gongfu it (note to self: don't do that). Thanks to an Aussie tea friend my fiance is completely addicted to Tim Tams. If you haven't tried them yet, you're missing out!

Gaby the Tea Guy is a fairly new tea blog that I've just discovered. In this post, he gives us an ode to one of my favorite Taiwanese oolongs. His descriptions make me want to go drink some right now. We can all give thanks to the leafhopper insect for its delicious honey aromas.

What Camera Do You Use?

Jordan from Tea-Tography gave some excellent insights into how to capture beautiful photographs of your tea. I love that she shows us similar shots from different cameras, proving that there are a lot of other factors where the difference is made. Her pictures constantly inspire me to do better with my own photography efforts.
