I'm in Beijing for March and April and I'm looking for good places to buy tea. So far I tried few smaller markets and the Maliandao street, but without speaking proper Chinese, it's rather random in terms of what one can get hands on... I want to be especially ready for the second week of April, when I hope to buy some fresh green teas from the first harvest.
Eventual tips for good places to try my luck would be also welcome!
Some to start with I take form here: http://blog.tranquiltuesdays.com/post/8 ... et-chances
Culture, language, tangibles, intangibles from countries known for tea. China, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, India, etc...
