Friday Roundup

Friday Roundup: May 12th to May 18th

The Friday roundup is a weekly collection of some of my favorite blog posts from around the tea world. It’s a great way to find new writers to follow!

2019 March White2tea Club feat. Milan Dancong Comparison and 2015 Gongmei

Oolong Owl’s reviews of the White2Tea Club always make me wish that I could justify a subscription. This month was especially interesting because it included two Mi Lan Xian mao cha with different levels of roast. Fascinating nerdy stuff! The bonus Gong Mei sounds like it would be up my alley too.

Song Tea & Ceramics – San Francisco Tea Tasting Experience

Tea with Alina shared her visit to one of San Francisco’s best-known tea shops. For just $10 each, she and her boyfriend were able to taste two infusions of three different teas. Considering the price and quality of Song Teas’ offerings that sounds like a steal. This place is a must visit!

My First Duck Shit Oolong (+ What is Dancong?)

It’s no secret that I love Dancong. That is why I was excited to see a post dedicated to this diverse category of oolong on Eustacia Reads. This week she gives us a brief intro to this diverse category of oolong and a bit about her first taste of the infamous Ya Shi Xiang.

2006 Troublemaker Fangcha w/Crimson Lotus Tea Raw Pu’erh [Inbetweenisode 198]

I really enjoy the Inbetweenisodes that James shares on TeaDB. This week he has a special guest, Glen from Crimson Lotus Tea. They tasted a new semi-aged production called Troublemaker. This strong and smokey tea definitely sounds like something that I need to try.

2019 Toronto Coffee & Tea Expo Recap (feat. Hojicha Co.) | Event Recap and Tea Review

Connie from Tea in Spoons wrote about her experience at the Toronto Coffee & Tea Expo. She was asked to judge their tea competition. How cool is that? Canada definitely has some of the best tea festivals. This event is another one to add to my travel wish list.
