Mei's in the NYT

The New York Times Travel Section just published its latest report on Taipei, and the WHERE TO SHOP section includes this on Mei's Tea Bar:

New Yorkers in search of tea will notice a familiar name — Ten Ren, (, the Chinatown purveyor of oolongs, is all over Taipei. But for a more intimate purchase of fragrant leaves, visit Mei's, 16 Lane 37, Yongkang Street, (886-2) 2394-2425; its proprietor, also named Mei, is a government-approved tea sommelier. (The state exam involves sampling 30 brews and identifying their mountain of origin.) Deep-pocketed tea lovers should ask for Assam from Hua Lien County, 3,200 Taiwan dollars for 2.2 pounds.
