Stopped by Rare Tea cellar today and chatted with Rod. If you have not been to the ware house you need to go. I wanted to buy everything within my reach. He has everything from exotic teas to pickled cherry blossom leaves from Japan. Not to forget every kind of syrup you can imagine. I picked up some birch syrup from Alaska, almost medicinal in taste. It is definitely a toy store for chefs. I’ll be back soon and you might have to drag me out kicking and screaming.
