Podcasts for Tea Lovers

When I first got into tea, there were several really cool podcasts that helped me learn and grow as a tea drinker. Sadly some of them are no longer operational but there are still several gems that are worth checking out.

Seven Cups is a retailer in Arizona who has been producing videos for quite some time. Although their iTunes podcast is no longer updated, they still post to YouTube Regularly. Delve into the archives a bit and check out some really great videos. I especially love the videos of their tea tours.

+Ricardo Caicedo of the My Japanese Green Tea blog has launched a podcast. His guests have been varied and very interesting. I’ve been very impressed because the podcasts are English but Ricardo is not a native speaker. He has done very well so far and I’m excited to see what else he comes out with.

Ricardo had me on one of his episodes! You can listen to it here.

Talking Tea with +Ken Cohen has been one of my favorite audio podcasts. He’s interviewed a variety of people from around the tea world. I had the good fortune to meet Ken while I was working at a tea house last year. His passion for tea is infectious.

I recently discovered an awesome nerdy podcast called Tealife Audio. They focus specifically on the Japanese tea ceremony and related arts. The hosts are all very knowledgeable and I really enjoy the informal banter style. I’m looking forward to listening and learning more. The Japanese tea ceremony is something I hope to study a bit more seriously in the future.

Harney & Sons is one of my favorite tea companies. They’ve created a podcast called As the Tea Steeps where they tell all about how their company was started. New episodes haven’t posted in a while but I really hope that they get back to it because this story is fascinating.
