Om Shan Tea
“Om Shan Tea! What an unexpected treat. I went with the idea that I would be one of several readers and it turned out that I got to feature. The place was full of tea drinkers but not many poets which worked out great for me. I never understood the attraction of the tea service thing until now. The right mix of teas can lead to some weird euphoric buzz. Lotus, the girl seving, and the owner Shan know how to get you in the tea haze. I strongly recommend the house blend.
Here are some pics before the place filled. You gotta love it when the staff says pics are okay as long as the people that don’t want to be photo’d are not in the shots.”
