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!
Anna from The Tea Squirrel contemplated tea and mindfulness. These are two things that go hand in hand even if we don’t realize it at first. In this first installment, she composed some haiku poems while enjoying a bowl of matcha. I love this idea!
This week Danielle from Tea & Me sipped a very special smokey tea that understandably stole her heart. I can’t blame her for that. There’s nothing quite like the subtlety of a genuine Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong from Tong Mu village, even if they are on the pricier side.
I really appreciate the thoroughness of the book reviews that AJ from Tea Stacks writes. A Thirst for Empire has been on my Amazon wishlist for a while so it was nice to get their feedback about it. The focus on history definitely sounds like it is up my alley.
The pandemic has had many effects on the tea industry. Jill from It’s More Than Tea took a deep dive into the impact on shipping logistics. I found the different factors influencing the industry in all of the regions she discussed in this post fascinating.
I am always happy to see a new podcast episode from Ricardo over at My Japanese Green Tea. In the latest release, he chatted with Oscar Brekell about how professional tea tasting in Japan. There are some great tips here for anyone looking to get serious about tea drinking.
