Consider sipping on: Sencha Shokai or Genmaicha from Tea Depot
Black Tea with Red Bean Paste Mooncakes:
Why it works: The bold, robust notes of black tea join forces with the earthy and sweet red bean paste mooncakes. It’s a taste explosion where rich meets richer, and you’ll love every sip and bite.
Consider indulging in: Flowery Rose Tea
Oolong Tea with Egg Yolk Mooncakes:
Why it works: Oolong teas characterised by their rough, typically brown leaves, bring a smooth taste of floral and fruity notes to the party, with a pleasantly subtle touch of honey. They tango elegantly with the savoury and creamy egg yolk filling of mooncakes, resulting in a beautifully balanced taste experience.
Consider savouring: Fancy Oolong
Jasmine Tea with Snow Skin Mooncakes:
Why it works: Imagine delicate, fragrant jasmine tea meeting the light and slightly sweet snow skin mooncakes, often filled with fruity or creamy goodness. It’s a floral duet that enhances the mooncake’s flavours without stealing the show.
Consider sipping on: Eight Secrets from the Far East or Jasmine Green from Fruit Basket
Black Tea with Nuts and Seeds Mooncakes:
Why it works: Black tea, with its earthy and sometimes smoky undertones, adds depth and intrigue to mooncakes filled with nuts and seeds. It’s like a cozy bonfire on an autumn evening, making every bite an adventure.
