Friday Roundup

Friday Roundup: September 6th – September 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!

How To Run A Tea Blog As A Business

Eric from One Man’s Tea Journey takes a look at tea blogging from the perspective of a CPA. This is a topic that has been on mind a lot lately. I think he is right in the summation that most tea blogs would show a net loss, this one included. Hopefully that will change in the future!

4 Playlists to Drink Tea To!

Cody, aka The Oolong Drunk, always finds a way to combine his passions for tea and music. This week he shared four curated playlists designed to last the duration of one gongfu session. I am incredibly surprised that Lana Del Rey is not featured on all of them.

BC Forestea: A TEALEAVES Review

Antonia from Steep. Sip. Repeat. reviewed a Yunnan black tea that was smoked with alder and cherry wood. Dian Hong Lapsang? Yes, please! I could definitely see that flavor profile reflecting its inspiration, the wilds of British Columbia.

Tea for Rainy Days: Umbrella 2020 from W2T

Marco from Steap’d shared his thoughts on Umbrella from White2Tea. This a tea that I definitely regret not purchase but it was great to hear about his experience, especially across multiple sessions. It definitely sounds like the perfect companion for a rainy day.

September Update: Coronavirus Impact on the Tea Industry

Coronavirus has already had an impact on many industries. The world of tea is no exception to that. Jill from It’s More Than Tea discussed some statistics from around the world. While a realistic view, I really liked that this post was not entirely doom and gloom.

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.
