This place was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint. We were helped by Chris and he was absolutely incredible! We learned so much about tea that we had no idea about. He went above and beyond to make sure we had the...More

Cheap and fun entertainment with the kids! The mirror maze was a really great pitstop while exploring Pier 39. It was pretty crowded but still enjoyable and the people who run it will let you go back in multiple times, which makes the $5 per...More
I was a little skeptical of this place at first, given how touristy Chinatown can seem. I visited several times before I purchased, and, ultimately, Herman offered the best customer service. I found him knowledgeable, patient, and able to address all of my questions about...More
For a very informative and tasty experience this a must stop. These folks know their teas. Love spending the afternoon sampling tea. Recommend Vital Leaf Tea as a must stop when in San Francisco. SPECIAL thanks to Carina (Herman's sister 😁), Herman & Kenny.

Great time tea tasting and feasting on the knowledge dropped on eastern medicine practices. All I know is the Blue People's is one tasty tea. A ginger green tea that finished smooth. Quarter pound for $20. Will return soon.

As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,
tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighborhood.
