Steep! Regional Tasting Series: A New Year of Chinese Teas

In the year of 2737 B.C., a wild Camilla Sinesis leaf fell into the Chinese emperor’s cup of boiling hot water, and thus tea was born.  Come for a fun filled night of our tea experts Katie and Ji Hye dropping Camilla Sinesis leaves into your boiling hot cup of water!

We will celebrate the Year of the Tiger as we taste through the three-thousand year old history of this enticing drink.  This tasting will highlight the diverse range of Chinese teas, brought to us by the award winning tea importer Rishi.  And since no celebration can go without a feast, we will taste the foods that showcase the Deli’s hidden gems–our secretly delicious Asian products.

Teas we will taste:

  • Silver Needle
  • Dragon Well
  • WuYi Oolong
  • Keemun Golden Buds
  • Golden Yunnan
  • Vintage Pu-erh
  • Jasmine Pearl

Foods we will eat:

  • Steamed Pork Buns with braised pork belly and Rick’s Picks Pickles (vegetarian option)
  • Traditional Chinese Tea Eggs with Forbidden (black) rice
  • Stem Ginger Shortbread with Robert Lambert’s Five Mandarin Marmalade

If you are in the area, I hope to see you there!

Cheers, Katie
