Chinese teas are high up on my list...so much variety, and like many of you all have said, it's very much in tune with their culture and practices.
On a side note- I ended up watching the opening ceremonies for the olympics- nuts!!! (sorry if this was mentioned over the weekend).
And if I might share with you all, I found a new tea spot in my SO's neck of the woods. Over 200 types of tea, and beautiful teaware (albeit $$) as well as good treats (ahem, Amai cookies!!). Apparently it had been opened for a year, but I just saw something on it in the latest issue of NJ Magazine, which featured good eats around the state, including this tea room in one of their features.
They also have a website http://southsilkroad.com
that sells their variety. A very clean, ZEN, place that I hope to visit again soon!
