About This Sampler

We hosted a virtual tea and cheese tasting with Carol Johnson from Monger’s Palace in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. You can now access a FREE recording of this event on the Tea Drunk Academy to watch at your leisure at home. This bundle includes the five teas paired in the course. Monger’s Palace delivers locally to the NYC area, but if you are elsewhere we recommend looking at the tasting card and purchasing the cheese from a local shop near you.

Please note: Some of the tea vintages may have changed, due to inventory.

Some of the teas may have changed since airing, due to inventory. A similar replacement will always be sent!

Gua Pian - Green Tea - This is the only Chinese green tea made using only leaves, no buds or stems. The comprehensive profile of umami, grassy, floral, and its gentle sweetness remind us of a combination of matcha and gyokuro.

Bai Mu Dan - White Tea - This tea reminds us of sun-soaked cotton, mead, apricot kernel and has a herbaceous note to it.

Da Hong Pao - Yan Cha - Da Hong Pao is known for its bold, lavish, floral flavor with a lingering minerality. There is great Chinese folklore surrounding this style of tea.

Ju Duo Zai - Dan Cong - Ju Duo Zai is a cute oddball among Feng Huang Wu Long teas and easily distinguishable by appearance and apricot kernel taste.

Qi Men Hong Cha (Keemun) - Red Tea - A very popular red ted, with deliberately no shape-making step. It is known for its strong aroma and notes of rose and honey.
