Shot at Tea wholesaler street in Taipei, Taiwan.
After leaving a well-established tea shop, I headed for another tea shop. There were many tea shops in the city of Taipei and it was easy to find during walking the streets. On the other hand, it was not so easy to find tea shops in other cities, for example, Tainan and Chiayi. Perhaps Taipei is the biggest city on this island.
Meanwhile, I came to another tea shop. For comparison, the shop next to this tea shop was also a tea shop. When I entered, the shop owner started to explain what he sold. Because I was not a connoisseur, it was difficult to avouch for quality by only seeing tea leaves. It was the best way to sample. And it was common to sample before buying in Taipei. This owner also started to prepare to brew tea without saying anything. The tea was delicious and the portrait of the former owner was hung on the wall.
