Friday Round Up: May 15th – May 21st
Camellia Flower Pu’erh Cake – Aliexpress
+Kayleigh Jade of Kitty Loves Tea wrote about the infamous “God of Night Sweats” cake. I think I may be one of the last of my tea friends to try this rather dubiously translated cake.
Cody at The Oolong Drunk wrote a great review of a Bing Dao puerh from Bitter Leaf Teas. I love the thoroughness of his posts. I never can get myself to track that much detail but I love reading it on the blogs of others.
A Guy and His Gaiwan
+Geoffrey Norman told the story of his first gaiwan, simultaneously on the new gaiwan service offered by +Smith Teamaker. That gaiwan staking basket is definitely something I think all tea nerds could use!
2016 Fade Sheng Puer from April 2016 White2Tea Club
+Charissa Gascho reviwed a puerh tea that I have definitely had my eye on. It’s a brick made out of Huangpian, what is generally considered a less desirable leaf. The material used is high quality though.
Interview w/Emilio of The Jade Leaf [Taiwan Tapes] — TeaDB James InBetweenIsode Episode #82
James at +Tea DB traveled to Taiwan and interviewed Emilio from The Jade Leaf. I am in love with those wooden side handle teapots!
