A Journey Through the World of Tea

This Week in Tea Volume I

It seems that in the world of tea, there is no shortage of creative and entertaining people, sharing their experiences and using their own expertise to bring information to the masses. I have over the last week been marking things I find interesting, and I have tried to come up with a diverse list of things I found. With that in mind, I wanted to share some of the websites, people, and news stories that I came across this week. Without further ado, the first edition of This Week in Tea:

Over at Tea Guy Speaks, blogger Williams I. Lengeman shares two new products on the market, the ESP Emporium’s Brew Stop Iced Tea Maker, and UV’s Sweet Green Tea Vodka

Tulsi (a.k.a holy basil) is a traditional medicine in India and is also used as a seasoning or herbal tea. Read as Alex Zorach drops some knowledge about handling holy basil properly.

Early in the week I stumbled upon this article when Stephen Wise of Utopian Tea, sent it out through twitter. Scientists have found that bottled tea may contain fewer antioxidants than brewed tea.

Lucid Quark, home of the blogger Jamie (of Montreal) shares with us her experience with the new tea from New Zealand, known as Zealong.

Jesse Jacobs (owner of Samovar Tea Lounge) shares with us the trade secrets of Samovar Tea Lounge at his website Real Ritual.

Tea Show TV’s episode this week features part one of an interview with author James Norwood Pratt.

Nicole does a quick review of Element Tea’s Chocolate Mint at Tea For Me Please.

Finally, post that Cinnabar of Gong Fu Girl put up, titled Pictures of Objects.
