Friday Roundup

Friday Round Up: May 22nd – May 28th

Matcha Tea Ceremony Utensils
+Georgia SS wrote a great post this week about some of the essential tools for preparing matcha. I really love the look of her chawan.

Podcast 030: Sharp Tea-Ceré
+Ricardo Caicedo interviewed the brand rep for Sharp about their super cool matcha machine. I’ve got one of these babies on loan for about a month and I’ll be sharing it with you all soon.

How to Eat a Scone Properly
+Jee Choe settles the great scone debate once and for all. It’s funny, I know scones should be eaten with your hands but it always felt a bit improper given the formalities of afternoon tea. I’m a cream first kind of girl too.

Japanese Dark Tea Tasting
+Heather Porter was lucky enough to do a tasting of fermented Japanese teas with Noli of Sugimoto. This is a little explored category but I’ve definitely seen an increased interest in it among my tea friends.

White 2 Tea Bulang Maocha 2005 Shou
Fine Tea Leaves is a blog I recently found out about through a Reddit post. I’ve really enjoyed reading their posts and am looking forward to more in the future.

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.
