the more expensive the tea, the better it tastes.

I think that Raymond Wong's tea tastes the best.
TenRen and Assamiea Tea are good.

supermarket tea tastes average to mediocre.

you should go to a tea shop.
the salesperson can help you find the best tea.

Not sure but I think that Jasmine Pearl (rolled balls) tea tastes better than Jasmine loose tea leaves.

Markham
Stassen - available at T&T. BTW they serve this tea in their own dim sum eatery so if you order some Dim Sum, they'll give you a cup with a tea bag in it. Cheap way to try before you buy.

First Markham Place has a small tea shop with tons of different teas and specially made clay tea pots. Its the one with tons of turtle figurines all around the shop and the giant tea pot near the entrance. I'm not sure if its the Raymond Wong place the above poster mentioned (spent 5 hours in that place trying teas and I can't even remember the damn name).

They will actually serve you the tea (using the traditional old school method) if you wish to try it. (I'm not sure if its because my uncle is a regular customer though...) Good service as well as polite. I've never tried any particular Jasmine tea they have though. If you wish to sample the tea, perhaps this is the place to go?

I think Ten Ren is ok .. not that expensive..


Flower tea is really good for girl, you can also try thr rose tea. If you drink the flower tea everyday, your body will spread some good smell. ;)
