At the Tea Table with Nazanin Yousefnejad from Tea Thoughts

I was excited to see Lu Ann from The Cup of Life interview one of my favorite Etsy creators. Nazanin makes the most adorable pins, cards, and other gifts. Her blog is definitely one to follow as well!

Why I Almost Closed Joy’s Teaspoon

My wonderful friend Naomi of Joy’s Teaspoon shared about how she almost closed her tea company’s doors for good. I’m so glad that she didn’t and so very proud of her for the new challenges she is taking on.

150 Years of Ceylon Tea

I’ve been living vicariously through Tony at World of Tea’s social media updates. He recently had the opportunity to travel to Sri Lanka to celebrate the 150th anniversary of tea being planted there. There’s more to come so make sure that you stay tuned.

[Tea & Food Pairing] Fig Toasts with White Peony Tea

I briefly met Joo at an event held by Rishi Tea in NYC. Since then I’ve become a fan of her impeccable palate and sense of style. This week’s tea and food pairing had me positively drooling. Brie is one of my favorite cheeses and I love the idea of pairing it with figs, honey, and white peony tea.

Westholme is Where the Heart Is

Robert of Lord Devotea’s Tea Sprouts has been quite the travel bug lately, adventuring all around the Pacific Northwest and Canada. I’ve been wanting to visit Westholme Tea Farm for a while but his post really convinced me. I must make a trip there soon!
