  1. If you are looking for a respite or a mini-vacation from the hectic city, attend one of the featured events sponsored by Fang Gourmet Teas. I attended their “A Duet of Teas and Desserts” on October 2nd, where they matched their fabulous Chinese teas with luxurious western desserts made by the celebrated baker Tawny Ong. It was a wonderful experience from the time you were greeted by the smell of roasted oolong teas at the door until the last tasting of the aromatic Pomelo tea as a finale. For the entire two hours I was scooped up into the world of tea culture in a way that is rare to find in New York City.

    The afternoon started with one of the finest oolong teas Red Elite. I was previously introduced to Red Elite at one of Fang’s tea tastings but this time it was paired with a creamy and light banana pudding. The subtle mild bitterness yet “banana” undertones of the tea were enhanced by the bananas in the pudding, making this choreography of bitter and sweet a “true duet” between tea and dessert.

    The guests at this event were then introduced to one of Fang’s “royal oolongs”, the Dong Ding tea. I personally love Dong Ding, but at this event Dong Ding was paired with the dessert of moist pecan cup cakes with a dollop of pecan whipped cream. Our personal Tea Masters at each table helped us understand what I would call the synergistically delicious flavors and complexities of the tastes we were enjoying. The Dong Ding combined with the delicate taste of the cup cakes with a hint of pecan provided a sensational culinary taste not often experienced by the tongue.

    The third tea of the event was Ti Quan Yin. This tea had a fine roasted flavor that was elevated to new heights by the “staccato” burst of chocolate from the brownies that were served with this tea. Many of the “chocoholics” at the event were in seventh heaven-and admitted it in public!

    The final tea of the day was the Pomelo. As our Tea Masters explained to us, this was a special tea cultivated and traditional preserved by the Hakka people of Taiwan over decades. We were honored to be able to sample and share this traditional tea with a slice of pumpkin cheese cake. The aromatic fruitiness of the tea and the spices of the pumpkin cheese cake made this a perfect “marriage” of tradition and deliciousness.

    The Fang “A Duet of Teas and Desserts” event did not forget to address our other needs. We were soothed by the music of Handel and classical Chinese music, inspired by a Tai Chi demonstration, tutored in the art and history of the YiXing tea pot, and educated in how east meets west through tea. It was a wonderful afternoon and a wonderful celebration of tea. I would recommend attending any, if not all, of Fang’s events to have a unique experience.
