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!
Antonia from Steep. Sip. Repeat. reviewed an interesting herbal tea made entirely out of rosebuds from Yunnan. They are stunning to look at and tasty to boot, judging by her experience. I couldn’t help thinking about blending them with a delicious Dian Hong.
Danielle from Tea & Me wrote an informative post detailing the history and origin of masala chai. I love that she did a lot of research using multiple sources. Make sure to check back next week for a deeper dive into all of the ingredients that go into chai.
I was invited to attend a virtual Japanese tea experience and was pleasantly surprised to see Ricardo from My Japanese Green Tea on the Zoom call. He shared his thoughts on the talk on his blog. I definitely recommend checking it out if you are new to Japanese teas.
Eustacia from Eustea Reads put together an extensive guide to choosing which tea book to read. She helpfully included links to the full reviews for each of them, making it easy to check out whichever one piques your interest. My “to read” list just got bigger.
Lu Ann from The Cup of Life wrote about the difference between some of the most popular breakfast tea blends. They can vary quite a bit from company to company but this helpful guide covers all of the basics. I think I’ll go brew myself a cup right now!
