I love finding new to blogs! You will be just as surprised as I was to find out that the author of Tea Blogging with Shinzo Shiratori is only 14 years old. His passion for tea and depth of knowledge is really impressive. I have always been a tea lover but I definitely would not have been capable of writing so well about such a complicated topic at that age.
It always makes me smile when I see a post pop up in my feed from someone who hasn't written in a while. That happened this week when I saw a new review from Gabriella of Teascopia. I love the visual style of her blog posts. The short but sweet tasting notes always make me want to try whatever she is drinking.
We all have a tea story and this week Megan from Tasting Teas shared hers, in both written and video forms. Tea is such a big part of my life and it always makes me happy to find a kindred soul who loves it as much as I do. The man in the pub was right, she should pursue her passion for tea to the fullest!
Tea lovers who have been reading blogs for as long as I have will likely have fond memories of reading Margie Yap's blog, Sweet Persimmon. Luck for us, you can still find her writing at Issoan Tea Room. She recently shared a wonderful discussion on the practice of chado and how it relates to music.
Stephanie over at Tea Journal wrote about how she has been cold brewing with a nifty little glass and bamboo set from Zens Lifestyle. It's like a miniature version of my giant cold drip brewing tower! I saw more than a few friends share pieces from this company at World Tea Expo over the weekend.
