Friday Round Up: September 4th – September 10th

The Great Tea Bag Debate
The Damn Good Tea Blog posted a great comparison of the pros and cons of tea bags. There’s a tea for every place and sometimes bags are a necessity. Once I made the switch to loose leaf I definitely found myself using them less, though.

Puer is the New Black
+Payton Swick wrote about the latest offering from +Misty Peak Teas. This new cooked puerh definitely sounds like it’s worth checking out. I think his observations on the encyclopedic names of puerh teas was right on point.

Teaaholic Talk
Nazanin of Tea Thoughts interviewed +Lu Ann Pannunzio. It’s always fun to learn more about fellow tea lovers. I love that no two people would answer these questions the same way. CommuniTEA is definitely one of the main reasons why I do what I do.

Huo Shan Huang Ya
Diary of a Northern Teaist wrote a wonderfully vivid review of one of my favorite kinds of yellow tea. The picture of the completely unfurled buds at the end is beautiful.

The Great Guan Yin Duel
+Geoffrey Norman compared two teas from one of my favorite Canadian outfits, +ZhenTea. Their Tie Guan Yin Classic is a tea that definitely stood out for me and it was great to get his perspective on it.

My name is Nicole and I love tea...a lot! I have been writing about my love of the leaf since 2008. My work has been featured on World Tea News, The Daily Tea, Tea Journey, and other publications. I am the winner of the 2018 World Tea Award for Best Tea Blog.
