The Shanghai Expo is almost over, but for those interested in tea I would suggest visiting the UN Pavilion where they have an exhibition on The Shanghai World Expo Top 10 Teas.

well my favorite -Hangzhou Xihu Longjing (杭州西湖龙井), seems to have made the top 10 at #4. It would be nice if they have sample packs containing all 10.

They had sample gift packs on exhibit (below), but everything was priced 3-4x what you can get on Taobao.
