Free Tea Tasting Schedule
Weekly Free Tea Tasting - Saturday December 7th, 11:30am-2:30pm 20% off for these teas during the tasting hours.
As winter finally sets in and snow blankets Pearl Street, there is no better time to cozy up with a hot cup of tea. At this week's free tasting, we will sample some of China's finest black teas. These teas will help keep you warm and comfortable during the holiday season.
Yunnan Gold, One of our favorite black teas, Yunnan Gold is rich and full-bodied. It is naturally sweet and a little floral. Made from only the tender tips of the tea leaves, it is perhaps one of China's oldest black teas. Definitely not one to miss. With its lingering honey aftertaste, this is a great tea to drink by itself (no sugar or milk). Good for multiple infusions
Golden Monkey, Golden Monkey is a smooth and sweet black tea from Fujian Province in China. The leaves are long and curled and of a black and gold color. The tea brews a deep golden-amber color and tastes smooth and malty with a slight earthiness upfront that slowly dissolves into a lingering and sweet aftertaste.
Keemun Ho Ya, The top grade Keemun tea from An Hui Province in eastern China. Ho Ya, or Monkey Picked, is used to describe the very young and slim tea sprouts. The leaves are twisted, rolled and very fine. This tea is smooth and bright with a sweet, rich, and earthy finish. This is a great tea to start the morning.
All these three teas will be offered at 20% discount during the tea tasting time.
