My visit(s) to Vital Tea Leaf were not only the highlight of my trip to San Fran, it was eye-opening. Uncle Gee is a truly amazing person, and he is the reason why this place is as brilliant as it is. First of all, you get to taste/smell/enjoy/learn all about the traditional Chinese way of drinking tea....FOR FREE! However, if you walk out of here without buying the amazing product offered, you must be nuts! Uncle Gee and his hilarious family teach you the value of tea drinking, and their passion for it is infectious. I really cannot say enough about Vital Tea Leaf and the wonderful experience my boyfriend and I had here. I would go back in a heartbeat. If you are passing by and you hear Uncle Gee yell "Get your [--] in here and try some tea, [--] you simply cannot refuse!
