Chinese tea goes well with more than just dim sum! This 1.5 hour experience offers a non-traditional food pairing to tickle your taste buds, with a guided tasting of premium Chinese tea and Spanish hams.

More details

In Hong Kong, Chinese tea is usually enjoyed with dim sum or Chinese cuisine, but much like wine, tea is versatile, with fragrant aromas and flavours that pair well with many types of food, from luxury chocolates to more creative combinations. A curious food pairing to tickle your taste buds, this 1.5 hour experience offers a guided tasting of Chinese tea and Spanish hams.

You will taste three types of cured Spanish hams - a Serrano ham and two Bellota hams that have been cured for different lengths of time. These will be accompanied by three premium Chinese teas, each with distinctive characters and tastes to give you the widest range of pairing options.

What can you expect? Cured hams have robust flavours that work well with a counterpart that balances it out or that matches it in intensity. Light Chinese teas can serve as a subtle, refreshing contrast to their strength and saltiness, whilst more complex teas can heighten its flavours and add a new dimension to enjoy. The tea master will teach you how to approach the pairing and guide you through these nuances as you taste. Together, you’ll discuss and discover a magnificent non-traditional tea pairing that will have you looking at Chinese tea in a whole new light.

Great experience with the tea Master Tomoko. All the senses were activated including the touch and the sight. We’ve enjoyed listening to the particularity of 4 different teas and their making.
We love wine and we felt the tea and wine have so much in common not to forget the food pairing.
It’s a must do experience in Hong Kong!
