Friday Roundup

Friday Roundup: May 3rd – May 9th

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!

How Many Teapots Are Too Many? A Review of “Inside the Head of a Collector”

Jill from It’s More Than Tea wrote a post that I think we can all relate too. When you get into tea, you also start collecting teaware. I’m definitely going to have to check out the book Inside the Head of the Collector. Some, like my husband, would say that my collection borders on hoarding.

Talking about Books about Tea

Eustacia from Eustea Reads posted a great video sharing some of her favorite tea books. There some old favorites here as well as new ones that I’ve added to my ever-growing “to be read” list. I hope that we’ll see more videos from her in the future.

Will Boiling Water Ruin Green Tea?

Ricardo from My Japanese Green Tea tackled a common myth about green tea. He brings up an important point. The world of green tea is diverse so they cannot all be treated the same way. Bancha and hojicha should be prepared with much hotter water than gyokyuro and sencha.

Iced Matcha Hot Chocolate | Tea Recipe

Danielle from Tea and Me Blog created a tasty recipe for iced hot chocolate with matcha. It sounds like such a unique combo but I could definitely see flavors working well together. The final result is beautiful to look at too! I’ll take this over those weird dalgona matchas any day.

How to Steep Cold Brew Tea

Making cold brew tea couldn’t be easier but it can be hard to know how to get started at first. Tea with Alina shared some simple steps to follow. I love her no fuss approach. All you need is tea, water, and a mason jar. My preferences is to use a bit more tea though for stronger flavor.

My name is Nicole and I love tea...a lot! I have been writing about my love of the leaf since 2008. My work has been featured on World Tea News, The Daily Tea, Tea Journey, and other publications. I am the winner of the 2018 World Tea Award for Best Tea Blog.
