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!
Ricardo from My Japanese Green Tea is my go-to source for all things Japan. This week he shared an in-depth profile of Kobori Enshu, an influential tea master from the Edo period. It certainly sounds like he led an interesting life.
Anna from The Tea Squirrel posed an interesting question. Do you or should you wash your teaware? I loved that she broke this topic down by the different materials. Unglazed clay is totally different than stainless steel or other non-porous materials.
Kimberly from Tea is a Wish Your Heart Makes interview Ian from Yunomi as part of her Matcha Monday Masterclass. There are so many misconceptions about matcha, and they cleared up quite a few of them in this post.
Reiss at Tea Rebel reviewed a Nepalese white tea from Karma Tea Co. Their pictures are always incredible, and this post is no exception. Just look at the detail on those fuzzy leaves! It sounds like this tea is definitely a must-drink.
Connie from Tea in Spoons wrote an introduction to Balhyocha. This is one of my favorite types of Korean tea. It’s complex due to the grey areas in processing, but Soo from Soocha Tea did a great job of explaining it.
