Friday Roundup

Friday Roundup: December 29th – January 4th

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!

Puerh Trends in 2020: Rise of the Zerg

Cwyn’s puerh trend predictions are something that I look forward to every year. I’ve never heard of the term zerg before but it definitely seems fitting in this case. It will be interesting to see how all of these play out over the course of the next year.

Oolong Owl’s 2019 Tea Consumption and Stash Data Report

Char from Oolong Owl shard her annual update on her stash and tea consumption. Whenever my husband tells me that I have too much tea, I show him how large her stash is in comparison. I tried to utilize her spreadsheet template this year and it definitely helped to stay organized.

2019 Tea Highlights + 2020 Tea Goals

Lu Ann from The Cup of Life shared some great highlights from this past year. I loved learning more about the blog’s rebrand and her new role as tea curator for Amoda Tea. We have similar goals for 2020 too! Make sure that you check out the awesome tea calendar that she created.

End of Decade Top 10 Albums to Drink Tea To

I’ve never been one to listen to music while drinking tea but Cody at The Oolong Drunk is an expert in it. He put together a list that pairs teas with albums from a wide variety of artists. I really like his idea of the tea and music taking you on a journey.

The Rules of Freedom

This week Danae from Camellia’s Treaty drew parallels between the structure of poetry and drinking tea. I had a very similarly challenging creative writing class so I related a lot to this post. Combining with my love of tea is even better. There’s a lot of food for thought here.
