Discovery Tasting


Discovery Tasting

$45 includes a tasting experience for up to 4 people in our San Francisco retail shop.

Taste four of our loose leaf varieties with one of our knowledgeable staff members as your guide. This Discovery Tasting will provide an introduction to traditional Chinese tea culture through a tasting of four core tea varietals.

As our selection of teas changes seasonally, our curated menu will also change. The current tasting menu includes:

  • Jingmai Sheng Pu-erh, Spring - An un-fermented Pu-erh "maocha" with crisp notes of meadow flowers and sugarcane.
  • Xin Gong Yi (New Craft) - A specially-commissioned, high-oxidized white tea from Fuding County; notes of golden raisin, dried apricot, and rose.
  • Alishan, Spring - Taiwan's most classic tea, Alishan is a refreshing balance of floral and vegetal notes, with a finish reminiscent of buttercream.
  • Golden Monkey, First Pick - A smooth and comforting black tea made from a mix of early harvest buds and leaves, Golden Monkey, First pick has distinct notes of cacao nibs, dried fruit, and molasses.
