I have read everything that was posted and already I have more information then I can handle :)
I am Russian [live in America] and I drink a lot of tea, but I mainly stick to the tea I get in the Russian store, because that's what I drank my whole life. It is a Ceylon black tea.
Now I am considering opening a tea room with a Russian flare, but mainly just a hang-out spot.
Do you know of a community (LJ or otherwise) of tea- related buisiness owners?
Is there anything I absolutely must know about this venture? What makes the most money - prepared tea sales or loose tea/cups/pots?
Any answer will be much appreciated
