Hello everyone, part-time New Yorker here.
I haven't been around any tea spots in New York as I could hardly consume all the tea that I bring back from China and Taiwan, but it'd be nice if people could introduce me to some good places.
I mainly drink Wu Yi rock tea, raw Pu'erh (sometimes aged but they're so damn expensive), and some Taiwan high mountain. But of course I'm open to all "good" tea. Quality is the most important thing for me, as I feel that all tea have good qualities that can be appreciated.
My father has been drinking tea for over 50 years, and every year when I visit him in China, I would be able to snatch some of his stuff, so it's really nice to be able to experience some of the more top-notch stuff around. Drinking alone is find and all, but sometimes it's just better to share, and hopefully I'll be able to meet some new people here, it'd be even better if we could brew together!
