Mooncake & Flower Tea Pairings
The Mid-Autumn Festival also known as Moon Festival or Mooncake Festival, is a traditional festival celebrated by many East and Southeast Asian people. In addition to the custom of enjoying the glorious full moon and eating moon cakes, tea is equally important.
The right tea not only helps to balance the richness of the mooncakes but at certain times, it helps to enhance as well! While there isn’t a hard-and-fast rule when it comes to tea and mooncake pairing, certain brews just go better with certain mooncakes!
Traditional Lotus Seed Paste Mooncakes
Traditional mooncakes are sweet and rich in flavour.
Suggestion: Youth Renewal | 出水芙蓉
By complementing the floral fragrance of the mooncake with the aromatic and grassy aroma of Forget-me-not and Rose, it does not overwhelm the palate, and accompanies the mooncake perfectly thanks to its fresh finish.
Red Bean Mooncakes
Rich, thick, red bean paste, and taste sweet and smooth.
Suggestion: Miracle Health | 健证奇迹
Earthy and smokey taste with slight sweetness, with the taste further enhanced by the creamy texture of jasmine and the freshness of lemon. It reduce the sweetness while beautifully matching the nutty taste of the red bean filling.
Snow Skin Mooncakes
Tender and fragrant mochi wrapper with different fillings.
Suggestion: Fruit Tea
Instead of the usual hot teas, try our latest Fruit Tea. It can be drunk hot or cold. A sure-fire way to guarantee an excellent gastronomic experience for your gift recipients.
Mooncake with Salted Egg Yolks
More commonly seen in baked mooncakes, the addition of salted egg yolks helps to balance out the cloying sweetness of the filling, giving it an additional fragrance that is satisfyingly savoury, however it can be proven to be 'heaty'.
Suggestion: Health Purifier | 一健如故
Our Health Purifier | 一健如故 contains chrysanthemum which will cool your body and the smooth and slightly vegetal taste of Mulberry leaves match the sweetness of the mooncake!
