If you're in the San Francisco Bay Area we invite you to stop by one of our teahouses to celebrate the 2009 Moon Festival, an important autumn holiday in the Chinese calendar. In honor of the full moon, tomorrow only, October 3, we'll be serving a mini-mooncake with a gaiwan of Superior Puerh mixed with a Chrysanthemum Blossom or two. The blossoms open and rise to the top of the infusion, recalling the beautiful reflection of the moon on the water.
Rich and flavorful, mooncakes are meant to be savored slowly along with a cup of tea. We've chosen a hearty puerh whose flavor complements the mooncake, and added the classic flower of autumn, the chrysanthemum, both for visual and palate appeal. And our delicious Moon Festival Special Combination won't stretch your budget; it's only $8! We look forward to celebrating the mid-autumn with you tomorrow in classic Chinese style.
