Friday Round Up: November 13th – November 19th

Saturday Morning Tea
Karen at Art and Tea’s posts are always so beautifully photographed. This week she enjoyed some Gyokuro, one of my favorite Japanese green teas. It was really interesting to read about the different shading methods that are used to produce it.

Matcha Dipped Madeleines
I instantly pinned Beginning with Bergamot’s post on Pinterest when I saw these gorgeous (and most likely tasty) matcha dipped madeleines. I love how Sara ends posts with a bit about what she’s reading and a few of her favorite things.

Modern Tea Processing Methods in Taiwan
Andy from +Eco-Cha Artisan Teas is one of the most knowledgeable people I know when it comes to Taiwanese teas. This week he shared a bit with World of Tea about modern processing methods that are being used there.

Getting Started with Brewing Loose Leaf Tea
Hoálatha at Cat Lat Tea shared some really great pointers on getting started with making tea. I couldn’t agree more with the point about being unapologetic about your preferred tastes.

A Guide to Traditional and Non-Traditional Matcha Tools
+Lu Ann Pannunzio post this week about some of the different tools that can be used to make matcha. It reminded me that I really need to pick up a plain chakin. The one I have is printed with cats making matcha and I just can’t bring myself to use it.

My name is Nicole and I love tea...a lot! I have been writing about my love of the leaf since 2008. My work has been featured on World Tea News, The Daily Tea, Tea Journey, and other publications. I am the winner of the 2018 World Tea Award for Best Tea Blog.
