70 / 100 SEO Score

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!

Friday Afternoon

Heather from Hanamichi wrote about visiting a geek-friendly tea shop in Seattle. It looks like the perfect place to enjoy tea and board games with friends. Malawi dark tea served in a French press with complimentary hot water refills? Yes, please!

Lo-Shan Hong Shui Oolong from Floating Leaves Tea

This week Char from Oolong Owl shared her thoughts on an aged GABA oolong. The complexity and fruity notes that she described really made me want to give this a try. I will definitely have to participate in one of Floating Leaves Tea’s live stream tastings soon.

Since I Never Formally Introduced My Gaiwan…

Jackie from By Golly, Ollie! introduced a piece of teaware that I am particularly partial to. That first gaiwan is always a game changer and I loved reading about how it has changed her tea experience. I may be a bit biased as I have the same exact gaiwan on my shelf.

Tea Book Review: The Tale of Tea by George van Driem

Eustacia from Eustea Reads reviewed a book that has been on my wish list for some time. She was lucky enough to be able to borrow it from a friend. Despite the high price tag, I’ve heard so many good things about it. It definitely sounds like a modern-day version of Uker’s All About Tea.

Not Just Tea: The Untold History And Future Of Tea

Marco from Steap’d shared his impressions from a panel discussion presented by In Her Company. The topics they discussed are so important and relevant for the tea industry. I missed the live session but will definitely be watching the replay as soon as I can.
