Friday Roundup: November 19th – November 26th
Bruce Richardson, noted author and owner of Elmood Inn Fine Teas, brings us some good news from the Darjeeling region of India. Hopefully, 2018 will be a more peaceful year full of plenty of good tea.
Lu Ann from The Cup of Life answers a question that I’m often asked, “How much tea do you drink in a day?”. My own consumption can vary quite a bit especially now that I’m not working at a tea store full time.
Twelve Year Roasted Oolong & Pretzel Shortbread
Alexis from Teaspoons & Petals has an impeccable palate for tea pairings. This week she paired a delicious ’05 oolong from one of my favorite NYC haunts with delicious shortbread pretzels made by a local Philly bakery.
I’ve very much enjoyed following Meigetsu Tea & Translations, a blog written by a Japanese to English translator living in Berlin. This week Lindsey shares her experience at a kyusu workshop held by the Japanese Tea Instructor Association.
Teatime with Mary has quickly become one of my favorite YouTube channels. Mary is a braver tea drinker than I. This week she tasted a selection of teas from the dollar store. The results were less than stellar but fun to watch.
