Friday Round Up: December 28th – January 3rd

Dobra Tea Pittsburgh:”Memories of Prague”, Chai and Mochi
Bethany over at All tea. No crumpets. visited a tea place that has been on my to do list for some time. Someday I’ll have a car and I’ll be able to visit all of these far off places.

Why do you choose your teaware?
I was pleasantly surprised to see a new post from +Adam Yusko in my feed. We share an affinity for Hagi Yaki and Wabi Sabi 🙂

Tea in the desert
+Cinnabar Wright found an interesting tie between tea and the band Tinariwen. I love the line translated from a song:”I drank a glass of tea that scorched my heart.”

The year 2014 in 12 pictures
Stephane of Tea Masters Blog ended the year in the best possible way, reviewing it all in beautiful pictures. I only wish that my own tea settings were as beautifully composed!

Matcha Chocolate Kit Kat
+Ricardo Caicedo and I share a similar weakness for all things matcha.  I recently scored a bag of these sweet treats at a local Asian market. If you ever have the opportunity to give them a try I definitely recommend it.
