The Sticky Rice Pu-erhblends well with the whiskey because they both have earthy and complex flavors that accent each other. One piece of our sticky-rice pu-erh can brew a whole pot of tea and lends a sweet and toasty taste to the Old Fashioned.
Jasmine Pearls are green tea hand-rolled into ball shape with jasmine flowers. This tea has a strong floral aroma, and is complemented by the mint and lime we muddled into the Mint Mojito. This cocktail is light and refreshing!
Happy #TeaTuesday! Hope everyone had a fun Memorial Day weekend. While you were hiking, roadtripping, and BBQ’ing, we created a simple cold-brew recipe for you. Sip some cold and refreshing tea with your friends in the hot summer sun! Learn how in our 1.5-minute long video below and let us know what you think!
Compared to hot brews, cold brews extract a different chemical balance from the tea leaves and eliminate the risk of burning or over-steeping the tea leaves, which makes tea bitter. Cold brews are super easy to make and allow you to get creative: add fresh fruits and mint to your cold brews to give them the all-natural flavor you’re looking for!
Hey guys! I’m excited to share that we’re launching our blog and inaugural video on this special #TeaTuesday. My business partner and fellow tea lover Shiao-Ying and I met some amazing farmers at the Fremont Farmer’s Market in San Francisco yesterday, and we created an impromptu tea party in the middle of the market in less than 5 mins.
Tea parties are easy and fun, and can be enjoyed for all occasions! Want to know how to pair tea with the fresh produce at your local farmer’s market? Check us out in this short video.
Similar to wine, there’s a tea to go with every type of food. The idea behind tea pairing is to have the food and tea enhance each other’s flavor, so you appreciate the different layers of aroma and flavor in both.
A more delicate tea such as the Milk Oolong (without milk!) that we featured in the video, pairs well with lighter foods like white fish, fruit salad, or buttery pastries. My buttery chocolate croissant highlighted the floral and creamy notes of the tea.
A stronger tea such as the Pu-erh in our video pairs particularly well with something savory and hearty due to its sweet and earthy flavors. We paired it with fresh empanadas from the market, but I love to sip it over dim sum as well! As a bonus, Pu-erh is known for improving digestion and speeding up your metabolism.
We also paired our two cold brewed teas: Hibiscus Orange Nectar with cupcakes as the tartness contrasts well with sweets, and Jasmine Pearls was paired with strawberries and cherries because floral notes from the tea complement the sweet and juicy fruits.

Rosa’s favorite pairing: Milk Oolong with chocolate scones or croissants, delicious and comforting for Breakfast or Tea-Time! The chocolate goes particularly well with the creamy quality to the Milk Oolong.
Shiao-Ying’s favorite pairing: Jasmine Pearls cold brew with seasonal strawberries and cherries. The refreshing floral tea balances perfectly with the fresh sweet fruits. The cold brew method of preparing tea is just perfect for warm (and sometimes lazy) days in late spring and summer!
