Friday Roundup

Friday Round Up: October 9th – October 15th

Five Mistakes I’ve Made While Brewing Tea
Rebekah from +Teacups and Blossoms wrote a handy post about some of the things can seriously mess up your cup of tea. We’ve all been there! Not adding milk before it’s done brewing is something that I definitely learned the hard way.

Us Puerh Collectors, Why We are Different
+Cwyn N‘s posts are always insightful in unexpected ways. I loved the comparison of collecting puerh to raising horses (former equine studies major here!). Puerh is definitely what I’m drinking the most these days but I haven’t quite hit the collector stage yet.

Genmaicha Rice Krispy Treats
+Bonnie Eng‘s creatively tea infused recipes always get an immediate bookmark on Pinterest when I read them. This one, in particular, captured my attention because it features one of my favorite teas to drink during the fall season. She had me at genmaicha!

Honey Scent Red from Terroir Tea Merchants
+Nichole Miller wrote a review on SororiTea Sisters that definitely made me want to give this tea a try. Honey scented teas are a bit of an obsession of mine. Terroir’s shop in Victoria, BC has been on my wishlist for some time. This is one selection that I will definitely be checking out if I ever make it there to visit.

The Tea Planter’s Wife, a Book Review
+Georgia SS reviewed a book that I recently enjoyed. I’d definitely agree with her point that the story holds an appeal for wider audiences. There’s a ton of value there for fans of historial fiction while also drawing attention to the social issues of the time.

Nicole has been writing about her love of the leaf since 2008. Her work has been featured on World Tea News, The Daily Tea, Tea Journey, and other publications. She is the winner of the 2018 World Tea Award for Best Tea Blog.
