I've been hearing about declines in China's foreign exports - particularly in the area of finished products. Clothing is growing, but at a slower pace. Toys, not unexpectedly, are down. Tea is up - well, that mirrors my experience. This year, my husband and I discovered Teavana, a high-end loose tea shop. VERY pricy, but the tea is also VERY good.
I'll be checking out some online tea sources this month - if they're comparable, but less money, I'll post about that.
