Where do you usually get your tea? I appreciate tea shops with some factors, such as knowledgeable staff, sample leaves and tasting. There are not many shops that offer tasting.
I went to a local tea shop, Marumoto for the first time. It is located in a traditional mall in my town.
I found another factor that I appreciate there. Do you see many tea boxes on the shelves? They sell tea by measure! Usually, tea is pre-packed and you have to buy the same tea in certain amounts, something like 100 or 200g. I want to try many different types of teas. So, it will be very much appreciated if I can buy them in small amounts. What the factors do you count on for your tea shop?
