Virtual STEEP: An Exploration of Pu-Erh Tea
Saturday, November 14, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm$5.99 – $30
Stay at home and join us virtually for STEEP: An Exploration of Tea. Unlike most Deli tastings, this event takes a deep dive on just one or two fantastic teas we offer. We’ll share the history of each tea, its production style, the terroir, the harvest, and anything else that makes it special. While we learn we’ll taste at least two steepings or preparations (sometimes more) of each tea to illuminate how the flavor can evolve. No matter your level of expertise you’re sure to learn something. You may even find a new favorite!
November’s STEEP will feature two new pu-erh teas. Pu-erh is an aged, fermented style of tea that originated in Yunnan Province, China. Most teas are better the fresher they are. Not these. They get better as they mature. We’ll try both a traditional sheng (‘raw’) pu-erh and a more modern shou (‘ripe’ or ‘cooked’) pu-erh. And since they’re perfect with food, what better addition to your socially-distant Thanksgiving table?
The $20 fee will provide you with access to 1 Zoom meeting link PLUS one tasting portion of tea and cake. If you have multiple people in the same house that would like to taste together, add an additional tasting kit for $10 per person. The Zoom link will be emailed to you. Tea and cake can be picked up at the Deli on the day of the event or delivered to your local Ann Arbor address for an additional $5.99. Participants receive a 20% off coupon to use at our online at zcob.me/deligrocery after the tasting.
