A friend in Germany is looking for a shop in which she can taste good tea. Any recommendations?

Leipzig, but if there is nothing there, I'm sure she can use other resources that might in the area when she travel etc...

Hopefully Kwok Ying von Beuningen, from Die Kunst Des Tees, can comment here. She sells excellent oolong out of Germany, sourced in Taiwan and China. Not a local shop, but she has a web site shipping out of Germany. She recently moved so not sure where in Germany she is at the moment, possibly outside of Frankfurt ; http://www.diekunstdestees.de

I never bought in Germany, but in Munich, there is another shop run by a Taiwanese expat: Laifufu Teesalon. Can not say about the quality, but it is going to be real tea from Taiwan.

Another shop which caught my eye is in Berlin: https://www.paperandtea.com
That is a closer to Leipzig, but still too far for a casual drop in.

Guess these days it matters less, just buy online and sample until you find something you like.

Not particularly close to Leipzig, but Rivers and Clouds in Lübeck seems great.
