This month we interviewed the last member of our staff, Anna, to ask her how she started drinking tea and how she found Shang Tea!
How did you get into tea?
got into tea when I started coming into Shang Tea as a customer, and
Nick brewed me a few different teas to try. I went home with Wild White Tea and Tangerine Blossom Red Tea,
and those teas opened my eyes to the full nature of tea.
Serendipitously, my neighbor also had a weekly tea gathering that I
found out about around this time, which continued my education about the
tea plant. I’ve worked in the coffee business as well, but tea
intrigues me because the flavor changes so much from steep to steep, and
I like to observe how my physical and mental state changes with
How did you find Shang Tea?
cannot remember why I was in Crown Center or on the third floor, but I
wandered in one day, and I was able to try a large variety of Shang’s
teas. I have been hooked ever since.
What is your favorite Shang Tea and why?
Today, my favorite is the 2012 white tea wu-long because I’m feeling a little homesick and my dad really enjoys this tea, so it makes me think of him.
Any words of wisdom for tea lovers out there?
Know your farmer!
