There is a great story in the Dining section fo the New York Times today about some really great folks, their love of tea, their tea shop and their beliefs. Here is a link: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/09/19/dining/19tea.html?_r=1&ref=dining&oref=slogin
I'm not sure how long the Times keeps its links active, so if you can't find it, let me know. The only think I would offer is that I prefer to keep teas dark and dry. We never use clear glass of plastic to store tea, even on display for a short time. Everyone has their own ways though.
On November 8th (Thursday) we are hosting the tea service at the Nyack Community Center. More on that soon.
