Greetings, Tea Fans!
I am in the process of trading a timeshare, so I have a wide variety of options for where I can go for a week.
I'd really like to go somewhere with a strong tea culture. I'd like a mix of tea rooms, tea stores, and such. And I'm not just looking for quantity, I'd like quality too
I'd absolutely love to tour a tea plant... if that's even possible. I know you can tour the Celestial Seasonings office in Boulder.
There are a lot of options, but I wanted to poll you guys to help generate ideas of some popular (and maybe lesser-so) places to visit. Of course, I'd do other things too :-p
The teamap is a good place to start, but it seems mainly focused on tearooms, and I'd like to consider tea bars and tea stores.
So far, I've been considering the Boston area (a little outside), New York City, and Las Vegas (which surprisingly seems to have a strong amount of tea places near by).
Are there any other areas you'd suggest? I'm perfectly fine with suburbs, as some of the timeshares I'm looking at are in suburbs and driveable to big cities.
