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!
Describing what you taste is one of the things people struggle with the most when they first get into tea. Jill from It’s More Than Tea wrote a great article that explains some of the science behind tasting. She also offers several helpful tips, but my favorite is to have fun!
Char from Oolong Owl gave her thoughts on a white tea from one of my favorite Chinese tea producers. Shui Xian has historically been used to make oolong, so I was really interested in reading about this one. It sounds like the perfect tea to sip on a hot summer day.
Danielle from Tea & Me never ceases to me amaze me with the thoroughness of her reviews. This teaware review took it to a whole new level with testing it across seasons. If you’re looking for a glass tumbler, this might be a good candidate to consider.
Phyllis from Relevant Tea Leaf got a chance to visit Sweet Shalom in Ohio before they close their doors at the end of the summer. The treats look so tasty, and I love the purchases that she made there, including a magazine with an article I wrote.
Tori from Siply Tealicious reviewed the original box from Tea Runners. I received a few of these teas in my pure tea box but hadn’t had a chance to taste them. I’m really looking forward to them after reading her notes.
