Chinatown is a delicious place to spend an afternoon dinning on Dim Sum and washing it down with teas for any ailment or taste.
It may feel slightly overwhelming among the crowded streets, unsure of what to do or see first, or where to go. I first stepped inside of a teashop just a couple doors down from Kerouac street. The woman who helped us was accommodating and warm and told us to sit to taste that day's selections of tea. We sat and she chose 3-4 for us to try and we were able to choose a couple more for interest sake. The walls were lined with different types of teas and when we were walking out we saw one in particular high upon the shelf. We inquired about it and she said that it wasn’t for us and costs $90 US per ounce. I assumed it was a tea praised for its medicinal properties.
