Friday Round Up: February 19th – February 25th

Michelle from One More Steep reviewed a tea that sounds as beautiful as it looks. The shot she got that showed the fuzzy hairs on the leaves is awesome! I haven’t tried anything from Oollo Tea but now I definitely want to.
Garfunkle’s: Afternoon Tea at a Speakeasy
Gatsby-esque afternoon tea in NYC? Yes, please! Jennifer at Inspired by Tea gives her report of this must see experience. For anyone who remembers Janam Teas from Jersey City, that’s who is supplying their tea.

Yunomi: Furyu Batabatacha, Rare Bancha Tea, A Tea Review
