Chef Wendy, of @WenYerHungry, is partnering with Chef Shruti, of Rangoli — Food Through Color, to bring you a very special six-course high tea brunch. Join them as they showcase some of their favorite teas from China, India, Morocco, and Russia. They will be sharing and be teaching about the origin and tasting notes of each tea while you consume six different teas paired with a small bite that unlocks the varieties of flavors and aromas.
During this experience you'll try tea and food pairings including:
Yunnan Pu'erh: This highly prized fermented tea is widely known for its digestive benefits, and its strong, earthy and distinctive flavor makes a beautiful pairing balancing the richness of twice cooked pork belly buns.
Bamboo Green: The earthy flavor and aroma of this green tea inspired the pairing with the ginger-infused bites of Hainanese chicken spring rolls.
Rose Jasmine: Refresh your palette with this light citrus and floral pairing of yuzu tart paired with rose water fresh cream to accentuate the sharpness of a typical green tea and the sweetness of the jasmine flowers in the Sichuan classic.
Gujarati Chai: The combination of robust black tea mixing with a signature house blend of spices comes together in a way you haven’t experienced chai before, and paired with the Gujarati Samosas, it’s the perfect bite.
Russian Black: Not known for their tea game, this fragrant Russian black tea has subtle notes of orange peel and cloves, and it is paired with a house-made Everything 'Bagel' Shortbread and Whipped Red Beet Salmon Creme.
Moroccan Mint: This authentic herbal mint tea, straight from the city of Marrakech, is an excellent note to end the evening, and it is paired with the traditional flavors of Morocco, in a Brown Butter Date Truffle and Coconut.
