This week, I stumbled upon some very nice articles about tea. One of them written by Max Falkowitz, whose articles are always very insightful but this week’s find is even more so especially if you’re curious to know more about the world of Pu’er.
- US: The Pu-erh Brokers of Yunnan Province by Max Falkowitz (Thank you John for sharing it. It’s based on the perspective of the White 2 Tea owner, Paul Murray. Link to Paul’s blog)
- Japan: New Minimalist Tea Shop Tokyo Saryo Should Be On Every Designer’s Bucket List (If you love minimalism like I do)
- US: French Tea Shop Opens in the Oculus (Kusmi tea and me, we have so much in common. French-Russian growing roots in NYC)
A brief update from September, 23rd, 2018. I actually work in the area of this new store location. I went there several times and I have been a bit disappointed with the overall “feel” of this tea store. It’s definitely bright and clean, but the warmth that usually comes with a tea moment isn’t there. Staff is usually to themselves and don’t appear to be that knowledgeable about tea. You can sample several different blends but it’s more of a “quick gift” type of store.
Oh, that tea house in Tokyo!
