Diary of a Northern Teaist shared their experience drinking an unusually smoky Taiwanese black tea. This is definitely the first I’ve heard of a lapsang from this region. It certainly sounds like the perfect tea to drink on a chilly winter day.
Ash from Ash Loves Tea reviewed the first box she received from David’s Tea’s new subscription service. I love the colorful backgrounds that she used to photograph each of the teas that she received. Make sure that you check out the accompanying video!
Geoff from Steep Stories went on a bit of An Ji Bai Cha adventure. He is much braver than I am for mixing green and black teas made from this unusual cultivar. Even if the results weren’t great, it was definitely fun to read about.
Eustacia from Eustea Reads is one of my go-to blogs for what tea books to pick up next. This week she wrote about one that I very much enjoyed. It was interesting to hear her perspective on it, especially since she is currently taking a Japanese tea instructor course.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and Traci from Tea Infusiast has some great recommendations for teas to celebrate with. There’s sure to be something for everyone on this list, but I think I’m partial to the teas with chocolate notes.
