We always welcome guests at the teahouse, but there was a bit of extra excitement this afternoon when San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom dropped in at the Ferry Building for a visit and a photo op with Grace. The mayor started with a slight faux pas, entering with a coffee cup in hand, but quickly apologized and replaced the coffee with to-go order of our delicious new gu zhang mao jian. Showing himself to be a true tea lover, he also bought a taster packet of Imperial Lotus Heart Dragon Well to drink later.
