ART+TEA GATHERING OCT 20 2018
Tea Table Inspiration
The Crimson Frosty Leaves 賞葉紅霜夜
Oct 20 in Chinese solar terms means the coming of Shuang Jiang (霜降) - first frost in English. Around the time of Shuang Jiang (霜降), the temperature difference between day and night becomes much greater. We still feel the warm of Autumn, but more and more we start to feel the coming of Winter.
The leaves turn red and gold. There is one Chinese poem that says the frosty leaves in Autumn are just as crimson as the flowers in February. While most of flowers lose their colors, camellia flowers start to bloom. We brought some of them from Yun Nan, China to share with you. Also, Oolong tea becomes very tasty; we love that it is fresh and honey-sweet at the same time. Naturally we just want something cool to let go of the heat from Autumn and something warm to protect us from the cold of coming winter.
VIP SEAT TEA MENU
OLD TREE CAMELLIA FLOWER DRINK
A freshly mixed tea for Autumn, using camellia flowers from a hundred years old tree. The flowers are picked and made in Autumn.
OLD TREE PHOENIX DAN CONG (DA WU YE)
The tea was made under the supervision of a 70 years old Chinese tea master， using tea leaves from hundred years old high mountain tree. The tea was hand made using a traditional Oolong tea method.
PHOENIX DAN CONG is a type of premium oolong tea from Chao Zhou, China that is famous with its high natural floral aroma and fresh sweet taste. There is one Chinese poem said "Drinking Dan Cong, will make you forget about all the other things in your life". Phoenix Dan Cong is also considered as the trickest tea to make. We will be brewing this tea with traditional Chao Zhou Gong Fu style. We will also open to questions after if you are interested to know about the techniques to make this tea.
