Tea in the Gallery: Puerh & Chocolate
April 26 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$20 – $25
Puerh is one of the most popular teas in China, but it is largely unknown in the rest of the world. Puerh is an aged tea whose distinctive flavors develop and improve over time. Several scientific studies also point to puerh’s ability to lower bad cholesterol levels. We’ll explore the basic puerh categories (‘shou’ and ‘sheng’) by brewing two examples of each – including a 25-year shou puerh! – pairing them with chocolate in various forms, a surprisingly delicious combination. We look forward to taking you on an extra-special journey with this unique tea. Limited seating – reserve early! Enter through the Penn Avenue door.
