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!
Angela from Destination Tea took a fascinating virtual class from the queen of afternoon tea herself, Jane Pettigrew. I really enjoyed reading about all of the facts and tips that she gleaned from this experience. Make sure to scroll all of the ways through for a picture of a truly stunning teacup!
Ceai.Tea.Cha is an interesting blog because it is multilingual and authored by two people. In this post, Diana and Andrei walk us through the teaware pieces needed for gongfu brewing and serving. Some of the extras are nice to have, but they also remind us that all we really need is a gaiwan.
Danielle from Tea & Me put together some delicious sounding tea, wine, and cheese pairings. Yum! Combining these flavors in a complementary way is not as easy as it sounds. Hot and cold-brewed tea is not something that I’ve seen before in this kind of tasting.
None of us are doing much traveling this year, but we can live vicariously through others. Connie from Tea In Spoons highlighted some of her favorite places from her trip to Taiwan a few years ago. Talk about a tea lover’s dream. I hope to be able to see them all one day.
Eric from One Man’s Tea Journey did a comparison tasting using different types of teaware. The three he chose are some of the most popular among gongfu enthusiasts, so it was interesting to see how they performed using the same tea.
