Also bought a lot of LongJin in ROC last month.. smooth tea..

Bro Googlethis 上海茶城 will yield a few result

I always visits 天山茶城 when I am there, huge tea complex and lots of choices can literally spend the whole day there.
 

Great to know XP brothers also like Chinese tea  :)

Anyone can suggest 1 or 2 good tea shop in Shanghai? I would like to buy some puer when I'm there next month.

Thanks.

Thought I would revive this tea thread. I just got back from visiting the wholesale tea markets at Suzhou and Shanghai, while also visiting Huangshan. Brought back some Huangshan Maofen, high grade Bilochun and Longjing. So I have the 3 most popular green teas. Also picked up some high grade Tie Guan Yin, which is Autumn harvest, just arrived at a Shanghai wholesale shop. While in Huangshan, I also picked up some Qimen Red Tea, which is the main component of English Breakfast Tea and some high grade Crysanthemum whole flowers individually packed. I still have some of the 1992 Pu Erh I bought in 2011, when I first started this thread. It's very good now and much better than some 1993 Pu Erh I paid an arm and a leg for recently. Acquired a 10-year old cake of Pu Erh in Shanghai, but will wait a few more years before tasting it. Storing in a dry cabinet at 50% humidity for now. Someone gave me some young Pu Erh. Doesn't taste like Pu Erh, so I may just keep it for another 10 years before drinking...
