My Top 10 Blog Posts of 2016

This past year has been a bit of a whirlwind for me. I got engaged and spoke at World Tea Expo. The direction of the blog also changed a bit. I find myself doing fewer tea reviews and putting more effort into writing informative posts instead. A big part of that is because of my own changing tastes and preferences. According to my Google Analytics, these are the ten most popular posts in 2016:

  1. 5 Buzz Words Tea Companies Should Stop Using
  2. Why Microwaving Tea is a Bad Idea
  3. 10 Things I Wish I Knew When I Started Drinking Tea
  4. Chinese vs Japanese Green Teas
  5. What Makes Tea Bitter
  6. 7 Clues You Have a Tea Buying Problem
  7. What I Look for When Buying Tea
