Greetings, fellow tea lovers!
Some of the finest teas available, and some of the priciest, come from China. It is also considered by many to be the birthplace of tea drinking. And small wonder that tea aficionados get all excited at the mere mention of Chinese teas. This little teapot presents this guide so that you, too, can enjoy many of the finer teas. TOOOT!
Note: There are many sites online with information about teas from China. No one site has it all. We have visited many of these sites and consolidated the information into a more easy-to-reference format. This took several weeks of dedicated effort. Since a lot of rewriting was done, we cannot footnote in an official manner. Thanks for understanding.
