Description

Join us at The Tea Lounge for a tea party with Gongfucha as well as fresh In-House Handmade Moon Cakes to celebrate Moon Festival.

At the Moon Festival Tea Party( The Tea Lounge's special Chinese version of Afternoon Tea), guests will gather around our big tea table to enjoy 3-5 premium Chinese teas prepared in Gongfu Style by Tea Lounge owners with 3 teas paired with 3 different styles of mooncakes(all prepared fresh In-House with Vegan options).

We will taste, learn and compare different styles of premium Chinese teas, talk about the stories and history behind these teas as well as Moon Fesitval. Just like a tea party gathering in China, where everyone enjoys the same tea at the same time and exchanges their thought and tasting notes with each other.

Mooncakes will be handmade fresh In-House by Annie of Handmade Story. Three mooncakes of different styles for each guest will provide the perfect compliment or contrast paring to our carefully selected premium Chinese teas.

Please book your tickets today(also availbale at The Tea Lounge, 268 Piccadilly St) to reserve your spot for this amazing experience. Spots are very limited. 2 Seatings are currently available at 11am & 1pm. Reservation Required. Limited additional mooncakes will be available for purchase($5/each).( Tell us now so that you will be guaranteed to have some to take home, check out Annie's youtube channel to see which style you would prefer. Vegan options available)

Moon Festival, mostly know as Mid-Autum Festival, is a traditional Chinese harvest festival celebrated on 15th day of the 8th month of lunar calendar with full moon at night. It's believed that the moon is the brightest and roundest at this night which means family reunion. Family gets together to celebrate and give thanks for the harvest( very much like Thanksgiving.).

Enjoying mooncakes, round-shaped Chinese pastries, is one of the hallmark traditions of this festival. In Chinese culture, a round shape symbolizes completeness and reunion. Thus, the sharing and eating of round mooncakes among family members during the week of the festival signify the completeness and unity of families.
