Friday Roundup

Friday Roundup: October 6th – October 12th

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!

2018 Lucky Accident Oolong from Old Ways Tea

Char over at Oolong Owl wrote about a Wuyi oolong that definitely sounds intriguing. Two teas, Huang Guan Yin and Qi Lan, were accidentally mixed together but the result turned out quite good. This review has me wishing that I had ordered some.

Tea Review: Path of Cha Da Hong Pao and Golden Monkey

Jen from Tea Leaves and Tweed and I are both craving warming teas as the fall weather starts to creep in. This week she reviewed two classic Chinese teas from Path of Cha that perfectly fit the bill. I immediately brewed a cup of Golden Monkey after reading this post.

Downton Abbey Tea at The Whitney

Downton Abbey mania seems to be everywhere lately with the release of the long-awaited movie. Phyliss at The Relevant Tea Leaf shared the wonderfully coordinated Downton Abbey afternoon tea that she hosted at The Whitney in Detroit. The cardboard cutout of Lady Mary is so fun!

Shangri-La Hotel: Time For (Afternoon) Tea

Antonia from Steep, sip, repeat attended a rather trendy fashion themed tea at the Shangri-La Hotel in Toronto. The lipstick shaped chocolate is so clever! The rooftop beehive was also a really cool addition that I haven’t seen done anywhere else.

My Birthday at a Tea Festival

A big happy birthday goes to one of my oldest tea friends, Geoff from Steep Stories. He celebrated his special day in the best way possible by going to the Northwest Tea Festival! It was great to hear about his experience since I have yet to make it to this event myself.

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.
