Friday Roundup

Friday Roundup: February 16th – February 22nd

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!

Book: Jane Pettigrew’s World of Tea by Jane Pettigrew

Michelle at One More Steep reviewed a book that I have been slowly pouring over. I’ll be sure to write about it once I finally make it through! She calls it an epic book to start off with for the beginner tea lover and I couldn’t agree more.

At the Tea Table with YouTuber Tea with Jann

Lu Ann from The Cup of Life interviewed one of my favorite YouTubers for her At the Tea Table series. I loved getting to know more about Jann and her amazing collection of Aynsley teacups. Check out the behind-the-scenes pictures of her video set!

How To Do Your Own Tea Meditation Any Time Of Day

Meditation isn’t part of my daily tea drinking but I have attended a few guided meditations that were wonderful. Sara from Tea Happiness shared some ways to bring a little mindfulness no matter where you are. It’s important to take a moment just for yourself sometimes.

STEAP’D With Friends Tasting Session: Sheng Pu’erh

Marco from STEAP’D hosts video tea tasting sessions that bring together online tea friends. So much fun! This week he wrote about a recent raw puerh session and shared perspectives from a few individuals. I love the graphs that visualize their tasting experiences.

Esteas reviews and Q&A with founder Estee Cheng

Stephanie from Life’s a Cup of Tea sampled four teas from Esteas. I’ve been seeing these little packets all over my Instagram feed so I was excited to get her perspective. She also interviewed their namesake and founder, Estee. It was great to find out more about how she got started.
