There's a tea place near my house that specializes in only imported Chinese teas. It was opened by a former auto exec that fell in love with Chinese tea cultural during his work stints overseas. There are no artificial weird flavor combinations like raspberry-chamomile, or black-peach. Just a ton of natural loose leaf tea. I just had a Pu-erh tea this evening that was absolutely amazing. It's a type of aged and fermented black tea that has a crazy taste. Kind of earthy and funky in a good way. The one I had tonight was from 2003 I think.

I wasn't a huge tea fan before I found this place, but I've since had some damn good White, Black, Oolong, and Pu-erh teas that blow away anything I've ever had before. The guy is older and has no idea he has opened the first hipster third wave tea shop...ahead of his time...
