Where Do I Buy Tea?

Where do I buy my tea is a question I often receive. The short answer is...everywhere!! I order various teas online and I buy different teas at many different tea rooms and tea shops while traveling.

These are photos of an order I just received from the Red Blossom Tea Company in San Francisco. I discovered this shop walking on Grant Street in Chinatown with GJ and AJ a couple of years ago. We went in, sampled a few excellent teas, and I purchased the Eastern Beauty Formosa Oolong. Read about it here.
After returning home, I served this tea to several non-tea drinking friends who declared it to be the best tea they ever tasted, because in their opinions, it has a natural sweet flavor. My daughter, Melissa took the remainder of that package home with her.

I decided to visit the Red Blossom website to order the Eastern Beauty to try again. While placing the order, I got a bit carried away and ordered Silver Needle White Tea and Keemun Black Tea, too. That's a lot of tea! Sounds like a good reason to invite a group of friends over to share a nice cuppa!

I don't think I've heard of this company. You've definitely got me wanting some formosa oolong! That's going on my "tea wish list," thank you very much!
