Find the Perfect Blend at Yuan at Hilton Millennium Bangkok
November 01, 2009
BANGKOK, Thailand - Any connoisseur of Chinese cuisine will know that the art of blending and serving tea is a complex art - forget the simple cup-and-saucer and immerse yourself in the ancient traditions of the middle kingdom at Yuan, Millennium Hilton Bangkok's stunning riverside Chinese restaurant.
Yuan is proud to introduce Worajit, our in-house tea-master, whose sole responsibility is perfecting and pouring our guests the finest blend of exotic teas from the Orient.
The art of blending and pouring tea is a craft that requires style, patience and grace - alongside an innate ability to recognize the subtle fragrances that make up the perfect cup. Tea is served from a gleaming golden teapot with a metre-long spout for a show of the utmost elegance and skill.
Worajit and Yuan were recently honored with a visit from Wen Tao, the Chinese tea-master who growing up in mainland China, the young Wen Tao was fascinated by the art of tea blending and pouring, studying the art of tea and perfecting his craft. Wen Tao worked with Worajit during his visit, helping to perfect the tea-master's skills and passing on the secrets of this mysterious and complex tradition.
The finest Chinese teas are available at Yuan, all of which are known for their healing the soothing properties. Refreshing Gingko Tea is believed to improve memory, alertness and mental clarity. Chrysanthemum Tea, with herbal notes, is renowned for its cooling properties while Ti Kuan Yin Oolong, the most famous of all the Chinese Oolong teas, grown in the An Xi province, is a detoxifying blend that helps to prevent aging.
So step into Yuan, and choose from over 30 specialist blends of the finest teas, served to you in a manner that has remained unchanged in China for centuries. Admire the Worajit's shimmering Chinese costume as he skillfully maneuvers the gleaming teapot with its far-reaching spout - serving you a cup of tradition you will never forget.
