Tea Break

Hong Kong Tatler - - Celebratory Feast -

Hangzhou

Dur­ing March and April, the tra­di­tional French-style coun­try house-ho­tel Le Pas­sage Mohkan Shan (about 60km from Hangzhou) presents guests with the op­por­tu­nity to join Mount Mo­gan’s an­nual tea-har­vest­ing sea­son, for which the re­gion is renowned. A lo­cal tea spe­cial­ist will ex­pertly guide you through a per­son­alised ex­pe­ri­ence of pick­ing the first shoots from the lo­cal Camel­lia sinen­sis tea plants that line the prop­erty’s im­pres­sive eight-hectare plan­ta­tion. Af­ter spend­ing the day out­doors, guests can sip sig­na­ture Mo­gan Huangya yel­low tea and sam­ple in­no­va­tive dishes that in­cor­po­rate it, in­clud­ing foie gras with home­made tea jelly, tea-smoked duck and green tea mousse cheese­cake. lep­as­sage­mogan­shan.com
