I found an interesting comparison: London and my country, Taiwan, both have tea cultures, but they have different methods in selling tea products. For example:
1. If you want to buy tea in Taiwan, you usually need to buy it through a “Tea house". These stores often do not have excessive commercial packaging, and are sold by the tea farmers themselves. On the other hand, people usually can buy tea from famous tea stores in London, such as Fortnum & Mason, Twinings and The East India Company LTD.
2. Compared with London's tea packaging, Taiwan's tea packaging is more local and simple.
3. In Taiwan, most of these tea houses are family businesses which are related by blood or marriage.
