  • We wandered down to Chinatown to visit the shops and try some tea. Our favorite shop was Vital Tea Leaf. The shop offers free tea tasting throughout the day. It is a mom and pop tea shop; and both pro...  read more »
  • The teas here are delicious. These are more pure than you'll find in many other shops. They don't offer blends or many different flavors. Just great, honest tea with clear flavors. The best part is the time they are willing to spend for you to try out different teas and talk to them about what you like. There's no pressure to buy, but you'll be glad you did in the end!
  • I'm not a huge tea fan but I really love attending the tea tastings at this place. It's a little touristy, but it's a nice change of pace from just checking out all the cookie cutter stores that surround VItal Tea Leaf. The last time I went the guy giving the tasting was extremely knowledgeable and charming. We weren't expected to buy anything but we actually found some tea that we really liked so we left with it (and with a better understanding of how to prepare it correctly)
  • Overall it's a good experience. Being able to taste the different teas & having someone explain them is priceless. The friendly staff is knowledgeable and know how to sell tea!
  • This was such a worthy stop, the staff was knowledgeable and extremely friendly. The one thing I wanted to find on my trip to SF was some great tea and a wonderful tea house, I will be returning and I am headed home with several delicious teas.
  • Stopped there after the Chinatown food tour and it was amazing! Spent a good half hour tasting and finally decided to go with the Blue People Gensing Oolong and it was well worth it. I'll definitely be back!
