Tea Shops in San Fran
Learn about tea-related establishments open across the world.
If you can, make the trip down to Santa Cruz for Chaikhana. They sell puerh hand produced by master wang (here's an interview of him)http://www.teance.com/category_s/109.htm. David (the owner) has loads of antique tea ware (his personal collection has stuff as old as the song dynasty). If you're looking for yixing, he just bought some from a collector (i just bought one from the 50's).

Thanks for the share. I really enjoyed the article. I added Chaikhana to my map! I would love to try one of the organic tree growing raw pu-erhs he's talking about in the article!

David & Marilee (of Chaikhana) have always been great to meet when I visited Capitola or Santa Cruz (their old shop was in Capitola). If you go please say hello for me.
