It’s never too late to play ‘tea party.’ In this East meets West cooking class, you’ll learn a basic history of tea and taste four types. We will teach you how to integrate Chinese teas into your self-care regimen and pick the best option for your ailment. We will also teach you how to throw a tea party like the British, including how to make scones and tea sandwiches.  

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Pre-made appetizer meat and cheese platter 
  • Small group size for hands on help

We’ll start class by learning basic baking techniques from our chef instructor. Feeling inspired, you will team up with a partner to start making tea treats. We’ll walk you through a variety of recipes, from mini chocolate cakes to scones. After everything is in the oven, it’s time to throw a tea party!

Get your fancy hat ready, as we set the table for a traditional English tea party and begin tasting. Starting with an unprocessed green tea, we work our way to a fermented black tea, aged over 10 years. As we taste, we provide you with a brief history of tea, teach you how to brew it, explain how to identify high quality tea, and show you the difference between tea and herbal flowers. All while dining on delicious treats.  By the end, tea could be the cure you’ve been searching for!

  • Jess was our guide for the Chinatown food walk, and Kara was our guide for a separate tour. Both were fantastic! They're friendly and know the stomping grounds well. And most importantly (to me, at least) they led us to stellar food at places I'd never tried, even as someone who's lived in or near San Francisco for almost eight years. If you need help finding the best SF neighborhood places to eat/drink at, Stretchy Pants is the way to go.

    Jessica was a wonderful host. She offered insight from a local perspective and guided our group flawlessly. There was the perfect mix of history and modern interpretation during the tour and the food was all amazing. All the restaurant staff/owners knew Jessica by name which shows her status amongst the community

  • Delicious food and a unique experience in the best Chinatown in the US! We felt very taken care of, especially since the staff at each of the places we visited knew Kara so well. Kara and her team have really done their research, and it shows!

    Not to miss! Had a great time walking through Chinatown, learning about the area’s history, and the character of the neighborhood. Peter was a fabulous host, making everyone feel welcome and encouraging camaraderie in the group. The food was delish.

  • This experience was really special and wonderfully put together. Our tour guide, Peter, was genuinely friendly and made sure we all had a great time. I bought this Dim Sum tour as a surprise for my husband's birthday and he loved it. My husband (who LOVES Chinatown and has been countless times) remarked that he saw things he never knew were there. We learned a lot and had some great food along the way. The reviews are right, show up hungry and you'll be fed plenty! We even had some special dietary requests for which they happily accommodated. Thanks so much Peter!!!

    We had Kyra as our tour guide, and she was such a fountain of knowledge! I'm a San Franciscan, and I've always felt that I know the city like the back of my hand. Kyra showed me otherwise. She took us inside buildings I've walked by dozens of times but never thought to go into, and there was magic in every one. Plus, we had some of the best hole in the wall dim sum I've ever had! This tour really helped reignite the magic of SF for me.

    Kara was incredibly flexible and adaptable for our group. Her tour was amazing and she was so knowledgeable about the both the food and the culture. We all left with smiles and full bellies and would definitely recommend to anyone looking to explore Chinatown from a local perspective!
