It is our tradition to give mooncakes to our clients and elderlies to show appreciation during Mid-Autumn Festival. Every year, my family and I are spoilt with varieties of mooncakes. As mooncakes are heartily heavy, we love to brew a pot of fine tea to balance the load, aid digestion and enhance the experience.
Below is Classic list Formulas for Matching Mooncakes with Tea:
Green Tea – Any sweet (i.e., lotus paste or yam mooncakes)
Pu'er – Savory (i.e., salted egg york mooncakes)
English Tea – Sweet (i.e., fusion sweet mooncakes)
Oolong Tea – Savory or nutty (5 nuts mooncakes) My family and I loves the Nanyang Tea series.
Cold Brew Carbonated Tea – Cold Desserts (Snow skin mooncakes)
