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.
Connie at Tea In Spoons put the spotlight on Tea Rebellion, a company that has been making waves in the tea world with its commitment to transparency. She tasted two Nepalese teas that are definitely sound like they are worth taking notice of. I enjoy her tea leaf photography style as always!
Anna at Form Follows Teas brings us an interesting tasting of three grades honey fragrance black tea. I always learn so much by comparing and contrasting similar teas. I have never heard of the Pareto Principle before but it seems like a useful tool when deciding if buying a higher end tea is worth it.
Geoff from Steep Stories of the Lazy Literatus shared his experience with two excellent green teas from one of my favorite vendors. Green teas are not something I see him feature often but these two were a perfect choice. Liu An Gua Pian is totally under-appreciated in my opinion!
Sara from Tea Happiness does wonderful interviews with tea people from all over the world. This week she spoke with Shalini Agarwal from the Glenburn Tea Estate. I always look forward to visiting their booth at World Tea Expo so it was great to learn a bit more about one of the friendly faces.
If you enjoy toasty flavors, hojicha is a green tea that you must try. Jill from It’s More Than Tea wrote a thorough introduction. She covers everything from how its made to the differences between examples made from sencha and bancha. I don’t drink it often but hojicha is one of my favorites.
