Tea connoisseurs come to Ten Ren for the jars and packets of powerful Asian teas that are difficult to find outside of Chinatown's borders, but art lovers should drop by to gawk at the assortment of finely crafted tea pots, tea cups and bowls on display (and for sale) on Ten Ren's shelves.
You may never have thought of conducting formal tea ceremonies at your domicile, but these finely crafted housewares will inspire you to begin doing so on a regular basis. If you're looking to purchase a Chinatown souvenir that's tasteful and will enhance, not detract from, your home's design aesthetic, or if you just want a really great-looking tea pot, put this shop on your destination list.
