Friday Roundup

Friday Round Up: May 21st – May 27th

White Tea Puer from Shang Tea
+Charissa Gascho reviewed a tea that has been on my wish list for a while. It’s made from a white tea cultivar but processed like a puerh.

Favorite Tea Ware: Ricardo Caicedo of My Japanese Green Tea
+Georgia SS featured +Ricardo Caicedo in the latest installment of her Favorite Tea Ware series. I absolutely adore the gorgeous natsume that he shared.

In Pursuit of Tea Appreciation
Varat at The Guide to Puerh Tea waxed a bit philosophical about tea appreciation. It’s important that we be aware of personal biases and other factors that could affect our tea tasting experience.

Sweet and Classic: Japanese Green Tea IN and Arahataen Green Tea Farms
Mel Had Tea wrote about some delicious sounding Japanese green teas from a new-to-me vendor and farm in Shizuoka. I’ll definitely have to check them out soon.

Giddapahar Spring Gold 1st Flush 2017 Darjeeling Tea from Lochan Tea
+Tea Journeyman‘s review this week reminded me that I have yet to indulge in a 1st Flush Darjeeling from this year. Giddapahar is one of my favorite estates too!
