Chinese Red Tea?

TorontoTips | Mar 15, 2012 03:21 PM

Hey gang,
I'm a relative tea novice, but I know what I like. :-)

I've managed to I.D. and track down the various teas I love, including the brown rice Genmaicha tea I was formerly craving, and now I'm looking to I.D. a couple of others:

#1 - The default chinese tea served in bulk at places like Richmond Court at Times Square Richmond Hill - I've tried to get more info, but the folks there simply call it "regular chinese tea" or "red tea", but it's different than the jasmine and oolong teas that some other places call their "regular chinese tea".

#2 - The base tea used for cold 'Royal Milk Tea' either the japanese bottled variety, or the type they serve at malaysian places like South Asia Malasia, etc.

Any help with variety, brand, and where-to-buy would be great!
