Red Blossom Tea Company

Siblings Alice and Peter are the second generation to run their families tea shop in San Francisco's Chinatown.  The've put their own stamp on the place though with a minimalist, modern interior refresh.  I found their passion and knowledge of tea almost mystical as they poured samples and helped me understand the huge arc of flavors and well as find a vocabulary to describe it all.  It was really amazing to find a business with such charm and elegance in such a sea of often kitschy Chinatown storefronts.
