I would by no means call myself a “Mad Hatter” but let’s just say that we had ourselves one hell of a tea party when we were in San Francisco. Our host for this party was Peter Luong. Peter spent years transforming Red Blossom Tea, his family’s small teashop, into one of San Francisco’s best tea vendors. With his new venture, Song Tea & Ceramics, he is able to bring small lots of unique and unusual teas, which he personally selects on his tasting trips to China and Taiwan. Meeting Peter was like reconnecting with an old friend you haven’t seen in years. He gave us his undivided attention while taking us on a tea journey, tasting for hours. We didn’t know tea could be so interesting and delicious, not to mention caffeinate the heck out of you.
