Staff Picks: Sharon Cai

Sharon has been with Imperial Tea Court since 2006, working in both the Berkeley and Ferry Building teahouses. Originally from Taishan, Guangdong, China, Sharon says her pick is Imperial Wu Yi Yan Cha. In Sharon's words:

Oolong is my favorite tea to drink every day. I like our Imperial Wu Yi Yan Cha because I like strong tea. Yan Cha, from Fujian Province, is good with spicy food or strong flavors. When I can, I prefer to brew it in an yi xing teapot, rather than a gaiwan, for the most flavor.
