Vital Tea-Leaf (San Francisco Chinatown)

Vital Tea-Leaf is a tea shop located in San Francisco's Chinatown on Grant Avenue between Pine Street and Vinton Court.

The interior is well-lit and the walls are lined with the shop's large selection of teas and supplies.

Tea tastings are free and the staff will help you find a tea that suits your tastes.  I knew that I wanted to stock up on Dragonwell (Long Jing) and I was offered a sample, skillfully prepared in a gaiwan in just one minute.  It was delicious!  They also have a White Dragonwell that has piqued my curiosity and has been added to my future tasting list.

On your next visit to Chinatown take a break, sample some tea, and perhaps you'll discover a new favorite.
