Loose Leaf Tea in Orange County

  • 3

Once again I've come back to visiting family in Orange County. My mission this time is to find a tea house or place where I can buy loose leaf tea. Any tea enthusiasts would like to lend a little help, would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Any particular type? Chinese - Taiwanese provenance? Japanese? Black teas popular in England? Give us a little more detail.

    If you're looking for basic, commercially packaged loose leaf teas, try Wholesome Choice in Irvine or Anaheim Hills. It's a Persian owned market, but they loose leaf teas from all over the world, including the Lipton red label stuff from India.

    Or if you want the Japanese green teas, try Mitsuwa or Marukai, both in Costa Mesa.
