Grande Provence celebrates Women’s Day with a Cape Fynbos Tea Ceremony™
Tuesday, 9 August, 11h00-13h00, Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate, Franschhoek
Discover the delights of the Cape Floral Kingdom and join Grande Provence on National Women’s Day for an intimate Cape Fynbos Tea Ceremony™ at this serene heritage wine estate in Franschhoek.
Hosted in the beautifully appointed Jonkershuis, this elegant event on Tuesday, 9 August 2016, is a unique 90 minute fynbos tea journey, inspired by eastern tea ceremonies. Adding to the lustre of this extraordinary day, one lucky guest will be taking home a beautiful Shimansky Dancing Diamond pendant to the value of R32 500.
Guests will be treated to a feast of fynbos flavours that include traditional favourites such as Honeybush, Rooibos and Buchu as well as the more unusual, yet increasingly popular Cancer Bush, Rhino Bush, Snow Bush and velvet mint Pelargonium.
The ceremony begins with a base tea tasting of aromatic fynbos and explores ‘the perfect brew’ with the addition of everyday natural ingredients. Participants experiment and create a personal fynbos blend to pair with Fynbos Delight, artisanal fynbos sweets akin to the traditional Turkish confectionary.
Accompanying the experience is an artistic interpretation of the fynbos landscape – a beautiful representation that symbolises the art of quieting the mind by attuning to nature.
After the tea ceremony, Executive Chef Darren Badenhorst will present a unique selection of canapés incorporating elements of ginger, star anise, dill, mint, cinnamon and cardamom that meld seamlessly with the intricate flavours of each tea. In this way the tea experience is carried through into his creative food style. These signature canapés can be enjoyed in The Gallery with Grande Provence wines while strolling through the contemporary art collection.
