During our honeymoon to San Francisco, CA my wife and I traveled to China Town with one real purpose: to buy tea from the Red Blossom Tea Company I had heard so much about. The experience was amazing. Red Blossom Tea Co. has an amazing store. It’s very upscale and trendy when compared to the shops surrounding it. I did not take pictures of the shop, because I did not want to seem forward or rude. On to the tea.
The Dragonwell Spring 2010 from Red Blossom Tea is a green tea. While my experience with green teas is minimal, this is the best I have had to date. Caution should be used when preparing this, or any, loose tea. It really is a delicate thing. Red Blossom have great instruction for preparing their teas on their site. The staff are also a great help in the store.
