Everyday I’m Tea Tumblin’

Up until fairly recently, Tumblr was the one form of social media that my love of tea has not spilled into. For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, Tumblr is a microblogging site. I like to think of it as Twitter meets Pinterest (I’ll have a blog coming about that addiction too). If you enjoy a blog someone posted, you can like it or reblog it, which is like the Tumblr version of a retweet. Most posts tend to be very graphic heavy so there is always lots of eye candy to be found.

I finally caved and created a tea themed Tumblr page for this blog. I’ve been blown away by how large the tea community on Tumblr is, especially when it comes to Adagio’s custom blends. There are some incredibly creative people out there. I follow just over 100 blogs but I thought I would list a handful of my favorites.

Teavenger is probably one of the most unique blogs that I’ve ever seen. Be prepared for tea drinking action figures, Dr. Who and Avengers. Their pictures of action figures posing with the tea they are drinking never fail to crack me up.

Tea Porn is a term that I’ve seen tossed around Twitter and the Tumblr by this name certainly lives up to its moniker. The tea photographs they post are a feast for the eyes and I am forever reblogging them.

Tea Moth is the blog documenting the tea journey of a 17 year old Canadian girl. She posts some really great tea reviews and pictures.

Fuck Yeah I Love Tea! and Fuck Yeah Matcha! are also perennial favorites for me. They both post some really great pictures. The goodies on the matcha blog always leave me hungry.

I was already addicted to Tumblr but getting tea involved has made it even worse. If you’re on Tumblr, you can follow me here. My ask box is always open and I accept submissions so don’t be shy!
