Topic: High-tech Oolong supporters
I read an article in Wired Magazine several weeks back that talked about how some influential dot commers have gotten really into tea, like Kevin Rose from Digg and Tim Ferriss of the 4 Hour Workweek blog (a personal fav of mine!). I think these young guys can really help tea expand its audience.
In some blog post somewhere, I read that there is some affiliation between Kevin Rose and Samovar Tea in the Bay Area. I'm very intrigued by an artisan teahouse (with multiple locations!) that attracts what seems to be a young and loyal fan base. Has anyone here tried Samovar teas? In particular, their oolongs? I saw on their site that they have an exclusive Muzha TGY that sells for $225/1.6 ounces, whose pricing beats out even the most legendary, award-winning oolongs that I both have or have seen. Such a teahouse with such exquisite offerings may definitely be a place I need to visit soon.
