Friday Roundup

Friday Roundup: November 17th – November 23rd

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!

White2Tea 2018 Snoozefest Sheng Puerh – November 2019 Review

This week Micah from The Weekend Sessions revisited a puerh that he reviewed back in April. Sheng puerh can change a lot over time so it is interesting to read how it has developed. This is one aspect that often gets missed in reviews so I appreciate him taking the time to update us.

At the Tea Table with Marco Namowicz OF STEAP’D

I love the At the Tea Tables series that Lu Ann writes for The Cup of Life. This week she interviewed a fellow blogger, Marco of Steap’d. I had the pleasure of meeting him in Chicago recently so it was nice to hear a bit more about his journey.

My Favorite Tea Places in Japan

Connie from Tea in Spoons did quite a bit of traveling last year. This week she put together a list of some of her favorite places that she visited in Japan. I’ll definitely be saving this one for future reference. I’m hoping to be able to explore Japan myself soon!

Outings: A Tea Date at Ching Ching Cha

I love it when tea friends get together! Jenn from Tea Leaves and Tweed and Nazanin from Tea Thoughts had a tea date at Ching Ching Cha in Washington, D.C. This is a spot I’ve been wanting to visit for a while so it was nice to live vicariously through them.

Tea Seed Thievery

Patty from Tea Plot to Teapot wrote about her struggles with tea seed thieving squirrels. I’ve had my own squirrel battles so this one is totally relatable. A squirrel wound up killing all of the seedlings I had grown a few years ago. Hopefully, she’ll have better luck collecting seed pods next year!

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.
