    Friday Roundup: June 18th – 24th

    Last week felt a bit weird as World Tea Expo was happening in Las Vegas but I wasn’t there. This is the first expo that I’ve missed since 2014 so I avidly followed social media and blog posts to stay up to date. This roundup is dedicated to posts reporting on this special event.

    Friday Roundup: June 4th – June 10th

    The Jade Leaf’s Teaware James from +Tea DB talked with tea friend +emilio delpozo about him fantastic teaware creations. Those side handled teapots are something that I’ve had my eye on for a while. 2016 EoT Wuliang Single Tree I really enjoy Late Steep’s style of reviewing.
