Fine black teas

I love the selection and quality of teas at Chado Tea Room with location in SoCal in Pasadena and LA. I would recommend looking at their website and ordering for delivery. But I'm wondering if there are any local places that similarly offer high end, single estate black teas (mostly Assam/Nilgiri/Darjeeling Indian) teas in the Bay Area. I remember a tea shop in Palo Alto some years back. I know about the good number of tea shops that focus more on Chinese or Japanese teas, that have some token black teas. But I haven't found anything to compete with Chado when it comes to focus/selection on Indian/African/Sri Lankan/Tibetan etc. fully fermented teas.
