The Red Blossom has long been one of our favorite tea shops in Chinatown. On our last visit, they wanted $30 per person for a tea tasting session. Not sure how well that is going to fly over time.

The service was so good and we learned so much that we even bought a few things....not normally something we do at a tea shop, but it was too good to pass up. Very educational and very good tea too.
