Hello! Can anyone give me any advice on finding good quality loose leaf tea in southeast Asia? I'm interested in all kinds but mostly Chinese tea. Looking for clay pots, for the Chinese gong ** tea ceremony...
Any help would be appreciated!

Check out Mae Salong in northern Thailand.
The district was settled by the anti-communist Chinese, after the King of Thailand gifted them the land, in appreciation of their assistance in the fight against Chairman Mao's mob.
It's a very pretty town, with houses perched along the ridge lines, overlooking their crops, and there are several tea processing 'factories' along the road. Just out of the town is a memorial to the soldiers, and incorporated is an exhibition and sales area. I'm sure you would find almost anything associated with tea.
Thanks guys I'll be checking those suggestions out,if anyone else is interested vang vieng has a mulberry tea farm that's organic too. Its good.
