Ten Ren Tea & Ginseng information
This large Chinese tea and herb shop is a great place to buy supplies of good green, red, white and black teas. The friendly staff – women in cool pink pantsuits – are used to dealing with curious Westerners: they'll instruct you in the art of how to brew and may also serve you samples so you can find your favorite tipple.
It's one of several authentic tea and ginger shops in the area, so consider a giddy crawl to compare samples.
