If you have always wanted to learn about how to appreciate tea or just need to take some time out of your busy week to tune down, space out and bask in a sensory blanket of calm and comfort, this is the experience just for you!
There is no better way to experience the ceremony of tea than through a journey through a variety of the pinnacle of teas – Wuyi Tea!
Wuyi tea is a category of Oolong teas grown in the picturesque Wuyi mountains of northern Fujian, China and are incredibly prized because of the distinctive terroir of the mountainsides where they are grown.
For drinkers who never tried a Wuyi oolong tea, its flavour is often described as a mix of a green and black tea, with an earthy mineral flavour and a lingering floral aroma. The complicated growing, harvesting, and processing methods adopted to produce truly authentic Wuyi tea is time consuming and is the reason why it is extremely sought after and priced much higher than others.
On this experience, Fort Sanctuary’s tea ambassador takes your palette on a journey through the world of finest tea with their specialty Wuyi rock-essence teas. They produce impeccable ingredients from the best lands and crafted their tea with their ground-breaking techniques in Singapore.
The tea ambassador walks you through how tea should be appreciated; learn about fragrance, structure, texture, body and the expression of “terroir” through four very different brews. You walk away having touched the soaring mountains of Wuyi and definitely more knowledgeable about how to appreciate that next cup of yea, whether it is a Wuyi rock-essence tea or other.
If you are looking for a unique multi-sensory tea tasting and learning session to help you commence your journey into the world of finest teas, look no further!
