A friend invited me to a tea shop in Hayward of all places. I was a bit worried as I try to visit all of the local tea shops but I had not heard of anyone who had been there yet. However, after my first visit there I was more then surprised by this tea shop. The variety of teas is unsurpassed and the service is excellent. I have raved to all my 'tea loving' friends about the Golden Tea Garden. They also have the added distinction of all of their wonderful events such as the book club and movie night. This is a must for all tea lovers!
