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. Is there someone I’m missing? Let me know about it in the comments below!
Jenn at Tea Leaves and Tweed put together recipes for some holiday tea-infused cocktails. They all sound delicious but I definitely think I’m partial to the Tea Cobbler with Ruby Oolong. Mixology is something I’ve been wanting to explore more of so this post is a good place to start.
Every year I see companies posting inappropriately about International Tea Day. Rather than a celebratory holiday, it is meant to draw attention to the impact that the tea trade has on workers and growers. Lu Ann from The Cup of Life offers some great tips on how to get it right.
‘Tis the season. Angela from Tea with Friends shared her very festive tea-themed Christmas tree. There is a small handful of tea ornaments on my tree but this collection is quite impressive. I love how she incorporated festive tea tins into the display as well.
Danae from Camellia’s Treaty put one of her favorite teas through its paces by brewing it at different temperatures. The change in taste can be surprisingly dramatic. I was able to try this tea at the Chicago Tea Festival and I can definitely see why she loves it so much.
Marco from Steap’d reviewed one of my absolute favorite dancong varieties. I love how thorough his tasting notes are. Everything from the look at the leaves to the body sensation is covered in an approachable way. I’ll definitely have to check out the sampler that he recommended.
