Friday Roundup: August 4th – August 10th

The Friday Roundup is a weekly collection of five of my favorite blog posts from around the world. It’s my little way of getting the word out about all of my favorite tea blogs.

NYC Tea Tour Day One

Rachel from iHeartTeas finally visited NYC so we had to have an epic tea crawl. In this post, she shares everything that we did on our crazy first day. There was everything from a fancy tea and chocolate pairing to a Broadway show and Times Square adventures. So much fun to relive it all!

The Complete Guide to Matcha: Making Matcha, Storing Matcha, Matcha Health Benefits, and More

Mike over at The Tea Letter put together a fantastic guide to everything matcha. There’s so much information here that he added a super helpful table of contents! Make sure that you check out the video about how to make matcha as well. His whisking form is on point.

My New Role: Tea Curator for Amoda Tea Subscription Box

A huge congratulation goes to Lu Ann from The Cup of Life. This week she announced her new role as tea curator for Amoda Tea’s subscription box. I love seeing two tea friends working together! I can’t wait to see what awesome teas they discover to share with all of us.

Wine and Tea: Commonalities Beyond Terroir

Jill from It’s More Than Tea caught my attention with a post about the things that wine and tea have in common. I work for a wine retailer so these are all things that pop into my head often. Hopefully, someday everyone will know Tie Guan Yin as well as they do Cabernet Sauvignon!

Trade War, Tariffs, and Tea

Tariffs have been on the mind of many of us in the tea world but we aren’t talking about the Boston Tea Party. Austin Hodge from Seven Cups Fine Teas did a great job of explaining everything that happening and how it can affect tea companies as well as consumers in the U.S.
