Friday Roundup

Friday Roundup: May 10th – May 16th

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!

Tea Together Tuesday: Old Favorites and New Discoveries

I’ve really been enjoying everyone’s Tea Together Tuesday posts. This week Jenn from Tea Leaves and Tweed shared her favorite tea business. Finding a great place to explore is so special, especially when we are first starting out. Teaism is on my must-see list once travel can happen again.

Brewing Tea: An Act of Love

Nazanin from Tea Thoughts wrote about a special Mother’s Day tea party. I love learning about the connection that she and her mother share through tea. It reminds me so much of my mom. She would not be so inclined to enjoy raw puerh or aged white tea though!

2019 Gore of the Forest Sheng Puer from White2tea

Char from Oolong Owl wrote an intriguing review of one of White2Tea’s sheng puerh offerings. Her tasting notes are so visceral. I always feel like I can taste exactly what she is describing. This one to check out if you’re looking for a slightly dangerous amount of tea energy.

Eisai- Buddhist Monk

There some names that pop up frequently for any tea drinker researching history. Eisai is one of them. This week The ABCs of Tea put the spotlight on Eisai, a Buddhist monk who is believed to be the first person to bring tea seeds to Japan. This post is a great chance to learn more about him.

Tea Crop – Spring 2020

Marilyn from Delights of the Heart has a small but mighty collection of tea plants in her beautiful garden. In this post she shows how she harvested and prepared the leaves from her 2020 crop. I’d love to be able to this myself one day. It’s such a fun way to mark the start of spring.

Nicole has been writing about her love of the leaf since 2008. Her work has been featured on World Tea News, The Daily Tea, Tea Journey, and other publications. She is the winner of the 2018 World Tea Award for Best Tea Blog.
