Hong Kong Supermarket, Flushing, NYSeptember 7, 2007 at 6:21 pm | Posted in Tea Reviews, Tea Stores | Leave a comment
Hong Kong SuperMarket has more than 1 location around NYC. thats good.
and… PARKING sucks (for both locations). some 1hour spaces on Main st, some 1hour coin operated on Northern, some pay parkings but very crowded in weekend. Haven’t seen if there’s a free store parking like there is in Elmhurst (tho its not that big so you might have to wait for a spot.)
Well, not exactly what i was looking for, no “real” loose leaf tea sold from containers (like Wing Hop Fung in LA, or even Kam Man market in NYC), but they do have a huge selection of boxed teas (alot of Yamamotoyama & TenRen) & some “cheap” looseleaf in boxes or those plastic packages like i bought. and great number of other manufacturers, including Japanese, sencha loose prepackaged, oolongs loose prepackaged, even 3-4 arabian teas.
Some tea-accessories: strainers, glass boiling pot (7$, tho i didnt check if its good to put on an open flame), thermoses, cheap-looking (and ugly) tea-cups.
mmm yeah, the unpacking, … tea bag porn !
so, store rating? not a real tea store, service was – self-service, they did take my money, im not super-excited on that front…but i did get teas in return… something that hopefully will taste like tea.
lookout for these reviews: but i didnt like any of them…
