Friday Roundup

Friday Round Up: December 14th to December 20th

Magnetic Tea Chalkboard
+Bonnie Eng’s creativity strikes again! I LOVE her latest DIY project. It would make a great gift for your favorite tea lover (or even for yourself) If only my tea collection was that small… 🙂

Obscurantism: What Tea are you Really Buying?
+Tea Guardian posed a very interesting question that has been a subject of debate for some time. Can any partially oxidized tea really be called oolong? The answer is not really but there’s still a lot of companies that do so.

How oolong got its name
+Global Tea Hut shared on T Ching the story of how oolong got its name. I just love these myths and legends that accompany Chinese tea culture.

Not Your Typical Smoothie
+Darlene Meyers-Perry‘s Green Sand Egg Nog Smoothie sounds absolutely delicious. I love egg nog, especially this time of year.

Really Need a Chasen Bamboo Whisk?
Kohei at Tales of Japanese Green Tea did a fun experiment comparing the different methods of making matcha. What do you think? Is a chasen really necessary?
