Friday Roundup

Friday Round Up: November 8th – November 14th

Bespoke Tea Tasting at Té Company
+Jee Choe shared what sounds like an amazing tasting that she had at a brand new NYC spot called Té Company. I was only able to stop in for a cup to go this week but I plan to go back for the full experience soon.

Byoh Matcha Bar in Copenhagen
Håkon, one of the contributors to the blog Cha, shared their experience at an awesome sounding new matcha bar that opened up in Copenhagen. It reminds me a lot of the places that have popped up in NYC lately!

Old Bear Puerh
I’m feeling a bit jealous after reading +Geoffrey Norman‘s review of an infamously smoky puerh that has been on my wishlist for some time. His explanation that a band of homeless bears took a smoke break in the warehouse on several occasions seems totally legit to me.

2012 Verdant Tea’s Golden Fleece [Episode 131]
The guys from +Tea DB did an interesting re-tasting of perennial favorite Verdant Tea’s Golden Fleece. I remember really enjoying this tea the last time that I had it. Their comparison of teas to angsty teenagers was definitely food for thought.

Interview: Nicholas Lozito of Misty Peak Teas
+sara shacket did a great interview with tea friend Nicholas from +Misty Peak Teas. I remember his story well from when I interviewed him on my podcast but it was nice to get a different perspective thanks to Sara’s insightful questions.
