This spring Yan Toh Heen’s Tea Sommelier Kelvin Ng will present an Authentic Tea Discovery Class showcasing unique Chinese teas he has discovered and will be introducing on his curated Tea Menu.

In April (date: tba), join Kelvin for an Authentic Spring Shincha Tea 新茶 Discovery Class. Shincha. 新茶 is known as the “first tea” made with tea leaves which are freshly picked from the new spring crop. In the class, you will discover the unique taste and scents of three exclusive first crop teas (green tea, oolong & floral tea) from hundred year old tea plants.

Tea leaves harvested in different seasons have their own distinctive characteristics, with the spring harvest known for its outstanding flavour. Spring tea is considered premium, as it can only be made once a year for a limited time. After the long, cold winter, the tea plants are fueled for growth; and the leaves are filled with nutrients and sugar, resulting in a flavour that is light bodied with sweetness and a spring-like aroma.

The Tea Discovery Class includes a gourmet Cantonese lunch by Executive Chef Lau Yiu Fai at our 2-Michelin star Yan Toh Heen with tea pairing and a Box of Chinese Tea as a souvenir.

Price: HK$1,388 + 10% service per person.
