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!
Connie from Tea In Spoons continued her tea travel series by highlighting some of her favorite places in Hong Kong. The Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware definitely sounds like a must-see. I’ll be bookmarking this post as a reference for future travel inspiration.
White2Tea always sends out something really cool for their December tea club shipment. This week Oolong Owl reviewed the 2019 offering, a 200g huang pian cake depicting a rather unusual rendition of Santa. It was great to hear how this one compares to the cakes from previous years.
AJ from Tea Stacks has a knack for finding books about tea that I have never even heard of. This selection will be added to my future “to be read” list. That being said, we are likely to have similar qualms about the content and lack of a bibliography.
Ricardo from My Japanese Green Tea reviewed a nifty tool for cold brewing. I finally made the jump after years of wanting one and I am so glad that I did. This was a lifesaver during the summer months! I was happy to read that Ricardo enjoys using his Filter-in Bottle as much as I do.
Jill from It’s More Than Tea wrote about an unusual Japanese black tea. The tea leaves are allowed to freeze on the bushes before harvesting. This is not a common sight as many farms go to great lengths to prevent the leaves from frosting. I love that this tea is organic too!
