In this English-language tasting, a tea and a sake sommelier will take you on a journey into the flavours and aromas of excellent teas and sake. Simple to complex, sweet and savoury, fruity and fascinating, a variety of sensations are just waiting to be discovered.
Join sake educator Arline Lyons and tea sommelier Nico Čolić on a journey through the world of flavour. During the course of one evening, we will ask and answer the questions:
Where do these flavours in sake and tea come from?
How do producers influence flavour in their premium products?
And most importantly, what do you like and how can you find more sake or tea with the same aromas and flavours?
Bartender and tea sommelier Nico Čolić of Hedonisms has selected four black teas from Taiwan, China and India to pair with four very different sake chosen by Arline Lyons of Discover Sake. Together, they will showcase a range of flavours from simple to complex, sweet and savoury, fruity and fascinating.
You’ll taste different styles of high-quality products from small-scale producers of sake and tea, learn to taste and discern what flavours you like, and learn where they come from. Each sake is paired with a cold brewed speciality tea served in a wine glass in order to contrast and highlight specific flavours
