Looking for a reasonably priced tea shop to buy loose leaf tea - specifically, green tea, white tea, oolong tea, jasmine tea, persimmon leaf tea, etc.
I'm willing to go anywhere in the outer boroughs but am assuming that Flushing (or maybe Elmhurst or Sunset Park) are my best bets due to the concentration of Chinese/East Asian businesses in those neighborhoods.
The shop doesn't have to be Chinese per se - any place will do as long as the selection and prices are great. In other words, I'm hoping to avoid the price markups at "yuppie" supermarkets and boutique grocers.
Are Chinese supermarkets my best bet? Any other suggestions?
