Friday Roundup

Friday Round Up: September 6th – September 12th

ICHO – withering
Japanese Tea Story wrote about one of my favorite new discoveries, oxidized Japanese green teas. I hadn’t thought about mechanization removing this aspect from tea but it definitely makes sense.

Yes Chef: Dressing my salad with tea!
Chai Bella posted a fun and creative recipe for matcha salad dressing. I’m not a fan of vinegar so I don’t like most salad dressings. This one sounds right up my alley though.

BST! – Thin Tea & Thick Tea
+Tea Talk put together some very helpful cheat sheets on usucha and koicha. Thick tea is something that I’ve always struggled with so I’ll definitely have to give these techniques a try.

Grilling with Tea
The Lovely Tea Cup posted some excellent tips on incorporating tea into your BBQ. Summer is almost over but I think we might still have a few weeks of experimentation ahead of us. I like the idea of using tea for a dry rub.

What-Cha – Fujian Anxi 2008 Heavy Roasted Tie Guan Yin in Bitter Melon
At WTE last year a bunch of us tea bloggers went gaga for an aged TGY that had been packed into a bitter melon. Little did we know that it would soon be within reach. New blogger Microshrimp wrote about this unusual offering.
