Excellent shop for Chinese and Taiwanese teas, particularly Oolongs and Hong Cha. Gongfu tasting of three teas with the owner is $10. This is a serious tea shop, and the gongfu tasting is intimate. Peter, the owner, is very knowledgeable and engaging.
Song Tea and Ceramics is a lovely, high-end, stylish shop. Think mid-century design-aesthetic plus expertly curated and packaged teas. The ceramic tea ware are lovely. If you’re in the mood to splurge on tea ware, this is a good place.
I’ll be back, however, for the tastings.
