Malawi Tea, Yellow Tea & More
Here are a few offbeat teas I ran across recently. I thought I should share.
African teas don't seem to get as much press as the varieties grown in China and India. But if you scroll to the bottom of this page from Nothing But Tea, you'll see several interesting varieties that originate in Malawi (if the name sounds familiar, thank Madonna). Also take note of the unusual Georgian teas listed at the top of the page.
You don't run across yellow tea too often, but if you're keen to try some check out these two varieties from Seven Cups.
If tea and chocolate get you going, you might find this article from Culinary Muse interesting. It's about a new line of tea-flavored chocolates from Charles Chocolates and Teance Fine Teas.
Rock and roll fans should take note of the fact that Violent Femmes bassist Brian Ritchie has moved to Sydney, Australia to open a tea shop. He will continue to play with the band as well. More here.
Last up is a bit that's not really about tea, but it's too good to pass up. A Nice Cuppa recently wrote about a new model from Audi that's equipped with an espresso maker. Is it just me or is this an incredibly dopey idea? And I don't say that just because I'm biased against coffee.
Anyway, Nice Cuppa's post seems to be MIA, but you can read all about it at Gizmodo - here and here.
