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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
