Let’s Talk Taiwanese Oolong: Tie Kuan Yin Oolong
I’ve really been enjoying +katherine bellman‘s series on Taiwanese oolongs. This tea is usually associated with China but can also be found being grown in Taiwan.

Penton Acquires World Tea Expo – Need to Know
The tea world was buzzing this week with news of the recent sale of World Tea Expo to Penton. It will be interesting to see what changes this acquisition will bring in the future.

Green Tea and Weight Loss
+Ricardo Caicedo hit the nail on the head this week with his thoughtful discussion on green tea’s purported weight loss abilities. I think he summed it up best when he said “Concentrate on diet and exercise, which isn’t easy, but it’s the surest way to succeed. The miracle weight loss pill hasn’t been invented yet, sorry.”.

Pumpkin Tea Latte Recipe
It’s that time of year. Everyone is rolling out their PSL’s. +Lu Ann Pannunzio shared a video for a creative recipe that uses real pumpkin puree. Yum!

A Moment to Fixation on Assam
+Jen Piccotti and I must be on the same wavelength this week. I’ve also been obsession over +Joseph Wesley Black Tea‘s Assam. Does that make me a Bong girl? 🙂
