I have visited authentic Chinese food shop which has a lot of varieties of green teas. The shop is kind of cheap and presents the stuff which poor Chinese people from rural areas would drink. So the teas are not noble and expensive. Most of them had a very weird taste and smell as if like of raw potato. I couldn't stand this taste.
For example, green teas in supermarkets are refined and free from strong unusual tastes.
potato..... that sounds dreadful
For regular consumption, I mostly drink Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearl from the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. Sprinkled throughout the month with teas given to me by friends from their return trips to China. And online random purchases.
I make sure to get something really nice every few months at premium pricing. Otherwise, my budget stays around $12-$15 for 50 Grams.
Now see, $15 for 50g is max budget here lol. How many types of tea do you usually have at any given point?
