Friday Roundup

Friday Round Up: November 20th – November 26th

In Search of Japanese Teaware
My dear friend +Jo J casually mentioned in chat one day that she was in Japan. My reaction was somewhere along the lines of, “Say what!”. I’ve been eagerly awaiting to here about her adventures there and this week’s post is exactly what I wanted to hear.

World O-Cha festival 2016
Speaking of Japan, Florent at Japanese Tea Sommelier gave us a report of his experiences at what sounds like an amazing event. It’s held in Shizuoka every three years and I think I’m making it my goal to attend the next one.

White2Tea Daily Drinker
I love the review style of Diary of a Northern Teaist. This week their post reminded me of a tea I’ve been meaning to try as well as an old tea leaf sniffing technique that I had abandoned sometime ago.

Tea Tales and Mocktails
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, +Geoffrey Norman gets to go to all of the cool tea stuff! This week he regales us with his experience at the holiday launch event for Smith Teamaker. The Morning Light and Wuyi Whiskey definitely sound like they are right up my alley.

Sneak Peak: UNYtea Chou Shi
A fellow tea blogger, Jeffery at UNY Tea Guy, recently launched his own tea company. I haven’t had a chance to try his wares yet so I was really excited to see a sneak peak review pop up from +Georgia SS. I love me so Dan Cong and this is one that I have not heard of before. Apparently it is a new style of processing that results in a greener tea than usual.
