Looking to stay at your office but wanting to do something awesome? We have the perfect solution for you, our Tea & Chocolate tasting. This experience is perfect for bigger corporate groups that love food but can’t leave the office.
First tutorial is on the Science of Taste- here we will learn about why we taste the way we do. We teach you how to identify key flavors and discover who in the room is a super taster!
Next we will go over how to brew the perfect cup of tea. From here we will learn which tea works for which aliment. Each participant will sample 5 different teas. Finally, we discuss the history of chocolate as we taste 4 different local favorites.
This experience is 1 ½ hours long. Our instructors need 30 minutes of prep and clean up, before and after the event. Add on time is available upon request. We are able to travel anywhere in the San Francisco city limits for a minimum group of 6 people. Please inquire about the East and South Bay.
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.Nicole A.
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 communityLaura
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!Aaron
Fantastic experience! Great mix of culture, fun and food with a side of cardio haha. Would absolutely recommend to anybody unsure on where to start their food journey in Chinatown.Nick
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!!!Betany
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.Lea
