Staff Picks: Art of Tea’s Favorite Teas

The Art of Tea tea’m is passionate about tea. We hand-blend and hand-pack orders, so we’re constantly surrounded by the powerfully pleasant aromas of tea. Working at Art of Tea provides an opportunity to try every tea available. We participate in tea trainings and enjoy a different Tea of the Day every day. Collectively, we’ve tried every tea we carry, so which ones do we think taste best?

Tyler, Sales Consultant

Years at Art of Tea: 1o Years
Favorite Tea: Golden Monkey
Why?: Simply called “monkey” at our house, my wife and I enjoy a pot almost every day. It is really more like a handpicked, bud only, white tea that has been 100% oxidized. We find it great when prepared cooler and faster (180 degrees, 2 minutes). This makes it less tannic and brings out a deliciously creamy, malty palate with walnut and cashew nuttiness. Plenty of flavor remaining for a second steeping and even good if the pot goes cold.

Favorite Tea: Naked Pu-erh
Why?: Pu-erh was my grandfather’s favorite tea, and I love the earthy flavor.
Extra Tidbit: New to Pu-erh? We have a comprehensive guide on the fermented tea.
