Tea is serious business back in China. Tea houses like this one sell a variety of cured leaves with benefits that range from promoting relaxation to increasing energy. Drying and aging leaves is an art form and the taste will vary based on how the master cures the leaves.
The owners of this shop are good friends with Coach Wu where him and his wife frequent after dinner and enjoy tea and conversation late into the night. We had the fortune of joining Coach Wu nightly where stories about weightlifting are told that you won’t read on social media or in any printed text.
This custom extends to all guests and friends of the shop where folks pop in and out all day long to enjoy some tea before continuing about their day.
