Napa Valley of Tea & Phoenix
Is there such a thing as a Napa Valley for tea? A recent article from the San Jose Mercury suggests that this is the case and that this magical place is located in the general vicinity of Taiwan. Napa knockoff or not, it makes for interesting reading even so.
While you're not likely to find any tea growing there, Phoenix has something of a tea scene, or so sez this recent report in the World Tea News. No, Arizona Iced Tea didn't get its start there (or anywhere in the state), but tea makers China Mist and Revolution Tea are based in Phoenix. Also featured, the lowdown on several places to get a decent cup of tea.
