Red Blossom Tea Company

While visiting San Francisco's Chinatown last month I had the opportunity to
visit the Red Blossom Tea Company.
A very nice little tea shop in amongst the knick-knack shops so
readily found here.  It is a second generation shop and by just observing I could see
that others were there to also learn and enjoy a sip of tea.
Several friends had recommended stopping here, so I knew I was in for a treat.
What came home with me was a bag of Organic Golden Monkey black tea.
This week it is the tea of choice for my morning tea.
They describe it as "A wonderful everyday black tea harvested April from the Wuyi Mountains of Northern Fujian. Red amber color tea that brews sweet, with hint of oven-roasted sweet potato."
I am not sure I taste the sweet potato, but I am enjoying the mellow, smooth flavor
with my breakfast each morning.

They do have an online shop at

What a beautiful shop! I'm excited to see the picture and read your post/review.

I received a packet of Pre-Rain Dragonwell from Red Blossom Tea Company as part of a birthday card exchange in tea/birthday exchange.

I am saving it for just the right moment --- which may just be today. :D

Thanks for this post!

LOVE the logo of Red Bloosom! Intrigued by the tea with oven-roasted potato essence--very different! Always appreciate your tea shop stops shared wit us, Marilyn, and so much enjoyed seeing about your Easter-time. :o) Happy Weekend ((HUGS))

I love the signage of this shop - second generation must mean they have a good thing going here.

Sweet potato, oven-roasted, interesting! Love to eat them but have never experienced drinking them!!

Chinatown districts are always so full of interesting things to view - I also love Toronto's, when Bob worked up there sometimes, I'd go along and spend hours wandering around when he was in the office!

Hugs - Mary

P.S. Yes, that Easter tea table you set was awesome Marilyn - the little girls so sweet too.
