WOW! When my business associate suggested we visit this tea market, I thought "this should be interesting". What an understatement! This place is the size of a Western shopping mall. I lost count of vendors after 100..........and each of them offers a special selection of teas, pots, cups, and other assorted local items. I will definitely find my way back... More
