Five Shangri-La Hotels Present A Chinese Tea-Inspired Culinary Journey Discovery

Xian, 29 April 2016 – In celebration of spring and the four-thousand year old tradition of Chinese tea culture, Shangri-La’s five selected hotels will present a tea-inspired culinary experience in five destinations – Hangzhou, Nanjing, Xi’an, Chengdu and Shanghai.  

Participating hotels in each destination include Midtown Shangri-La Hotel, Hangzhou; Shangri-La Hotel, Nanjing; Shangri-La Hotel, Xi’an; Shangri-La Hotel, Chengdu, and Shangri-La Hotel, West Shanghai. The hotel’s Chinese Executive Chefs will be presenting their interpretation of spring, marrying the flavours of Chinese tea with their provincial Chinese cuisine, using only the freshest seasonal produce. Each hotel’s menu is designed to showcase the uniqueness of each destination. The menu also features Shangri-La’s spring tea as recommended by the Shangri-La group’s professional tea sommelier. Promotional menus are available from 15 April to 31 May 2016.  

Spring is the season when people in China use seasonal local ingredients to prepare their meals and host lunch and dinner with their family and friends. Chinese tea is the most important production in spring with a history of over 4,700 years. It is the country’s national beverage and an age-old tradition in the lives of the Chinese people. The best Chinese tea is produced in China and harvested based on the best time to consume the tea leaves. There are numerous varieties of Chinese tea to choose from: Yu Hua Tea from Nanjing, Bi Luo Chun from Suzhou, Long Jing from Hangzhou, Zhu Ye Qing from Chengdu, Ba Bao Tea from Xi’An, Oolong from Fujian, and more.
