    Many people said domain name has an effect in SE ranking, but I don't know whether

    chinese-tea.com.cn is better or
    chinesetea.com is better.

    Alternatively, does hypen matters?

    Some search engines rank you a little higher if you have the hyphen, thus it gives chinese and tea both a keyword weighting. Although this may be true, the keywords in your domain have little weight compared to the way you set up your actual page for search engines.

    But for return visitors, and word of mouth visitors I think it would be easier for them to remember it w/o the hyphen.

    I would go for the non heifen... Even if it got me a worse listing (which I don't think it will) I would never register a heifen domain over the same normal domain....

    In my experiences there dosen't seem much difference, perhaps even beter for no heifen, and this is likely to be sooo minor compared to the other things that can be worked on..

    I would go for the .com
