Friday Roundup

Friday Round Up: February 14th – February 20th

Golden Tea Leaf – Honey Red Jade Tea
Lately I seem to have a bit of an obsession with honey aroma teas. Marzipan over at TeaLover.Net wrote about a new favorite of mine. This tea was so good!

Badass Tea Instagrammers of Russia, Latvia, and Belarus
Most tea drinkers on Instagram have probably noticed a large number of their followers are from Eastern Europe. +Tony Gebely put together a great list of those that you should be following.

“The Book of Tea,” by Kakuzo Okakura
The Book of Tea is a classic that I frequently return to. Mel Had Tea said in her review this week that it reminder her of scrolling through the Tumblr of a well-read 1900s philosophy student obsessed with tea.

Toronto Tea Festival 2016 Recap and Thoughts
+Lu Ann Pannunzio gave us a great recap of the Toronto Tea Festival. I’ve got to say that this NYC girl is a bit jealous of the thriving tea culture that is developing to the north. It sounds like such a good time!

Roasted Oolong Tea & Pear Baked Oatmeal
If I had to a pick just one blogger’s recipes to live off of that blogger would definitely be +Alexis Siemons. If you haven’t already, I highly suggest picking up her quarterly journal, with tea. This Da Hong Pao infused oatmeal would definitely hit the spot on a chilly morning.

Nicole has been writing about her love of the leaf since 2008. Her work has been featured on World Tea News, The Daily Tea, Tea Journey, and other publications. She is the winner of the 2018 World Tea Award for Best Tea Blog.
