newest staff member Ross started working for us in March 2014 in
preparation for our move to our new location on the first floor of Crown
Center. He is passionate about high quality tea and so we sat down with
him to ask him a few questions about his interested in tea and Shang
How did you get into tea?
I went to China my sophomore year of high school, where I learned quite a bit about Chinese tea culture. This sparked my interested in tea.
How did you find Shang Tea?
When I returned from my trip to China, I wanted to find someplace in Kansas City where I could find high quality tea. My first search brought me to another tea shop, but the mall was closed for some reason, so I did another quick search for tea in Kansas City and came up with Shang Tea. I visited there and enjoyed the tea so much that I never even made it to another tea shop in Kansas City.
What is your favorite Shang Tea and why?
I really enjoy the White Peony King because it is so simple and smooth, and my body knows that it is good for me.
Any words of wisdom for tea lovers?
Share good tea
