Latest Staff Picks


Wilai at the Ferry Building store is currently drinking the Organic Jade Oolong. She likes green oolong. For her, this tea is flowery but not over the top. It’s a great every day drinking tea. She also likes it because it is organic, new, and super affordable!

Wilai is originally from Bangkok, Thailand. She has officially been converted to a tea drinker after working at the Imperial Tea Court!

Enjoy the Moon Festival!

In case you forgot to mark your calendar, today is Zhong Qiu, the Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Moon Festival. It's the night when families get together to eat mooncakes, drink tea, and admire the full moon. Tonight Winnie Yu stopped by the teahouse to share mooncakes and Topaz Puerh with Roy and his family. It's an unusually fog-free night in San Francisco, which allowed the harvest moon to shine brightly on this year's event.
