IN BERLIN TEA FESTIVAL 2023
Tea in Taiwan is more than a beverage; it's intricately woven into local culture, particularly in culinary arts. Taiwanese tea is flavorful and filled with distinguished scents. Using tea as an ingredient or seasoning to enhance dishes, desserts, and both alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks is a common practice. As modern diet trends like low-fat and vegan gain popularity, chefs are exploring tea in recipes to add deliciousness without compromising taste.
With this project, we aim to invite and "TEAse" local chefs & brands in Germany to explore Taiwanese tea as a distinctive ingredient in their culinary creations. Tea can go beyond being a liquid for hydration; it is an element of imparting flavor to people's palates and lifestyles, serving as a source of inspiration to bridge cultures and foster creativity.

TEA FOOD PAIRING DEGUSTATION
Showing how Taiwanese tea can complement Taiwanese cuisine in
the restaurant Cozymazu on Nov. 19 2023, the Berlin Tea Sunday .
1700 pm to 2030 pm
There are many parallels between specialty tea and wine. Both are potable formations
where tasters can sense their terroir and origin; different aromatic and flavorful expressions develop from distinct cultivars and how they were artisanally crafted. Since the 19th Century, Formosa Oolong, a range of semi-oxidized teas from the island now known as Taiwan, has been praised as "The Champagne of Teas" for its delicate taste.
In this tea-food pairing event, Deerland Tea collaborates with one of the most authentic
Taiwanese restaurants in Berlin, Cozymazu, to bring you the flavorful experience of how Taiwanese tea can complement its local dishes, akin to wine-food pairing in Western culinary art.
