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!
Rie from Tea Curious contemplated the life-changing teas that have rocked her world over the years. Her closing lines are sage advice: You can never predict how your tea practice might impact someone else’s life, tea and otherwise. Pour tea as much as you can, and as generously as you can.
Mike over at The Tea Letter wrote a great post about his experience at the San Francisco Tea Festival. It was interesting to hear how this year’s event compared to previous years, especially with the change of venue. His write up made me really want to try Sugimoto’s Mizuki matcha!
Anna at The Tea Squirrel quizzed Italian tea blogger Elisa about her visit to Wakoen Tea farm in Kagoshima. I loved reading about her experience and the pictures are a great addition. Her description of their arabikicha was intriguing as well.
Speaking of Japanese tea, Eric from One Man’s Tea Journey reviewed a white and black tea that were both made with the Benefuki cultivar. I’ve seen quite a bit of a buzz about these teas in my Instagram feed so it was great to read what he thought about them.
Tea with Jann is a YouTube channel that I’ve really enjoyed. This week she shared a sneak peek of the infamous advent calender from DAVIDsTEA. There are some spoilers so I love that she gives the viewer an opportunity to skip ahead.
