Friday Round Up: October 16th – October 22nd

2017 Tea Festival and Trade Show Schedule
Looking for a fun tea event to attend? +Tony Gebely put together a list of some of the upcoming festivals and trade shows for next year. Those dates will be here before you know it!

Uji Press Tea Tour 2016
+Ricardo Caicedo had what sounds like a once in a lifetime trip to the Uji region of Japan. How lucky is he! I’m definitely living vicariously through this blog post.

Dong Ding Near-Death Experiences
+Geoffrey Norman is one of my favorite tea storytellers (in case you couldn’t tell from his many appearances in this round up). This week he wrote about a near-death experience that Shiuwen Tai of +Floating Leaves Tea had on her first visit to Dong Ding.

Jump start your own tea journey with these books on tea
+katherine bellman put together an awesome list of some must check out tea reads. Many of these are permanent residents on my bookshelf but I’m also adding a few to my “to read” pile.


Pacific Northwest Taiwanese Black Tea Comparison
+Charissa Gascho relocated and I’ve been loving all of the posts focused on the Pacific Northwest. In this post, she compares Ruby 18 offerings from three different vendors.
