What is a tasting party?

An ice cream tasting party is a magical event where you can indulge in 2-oz. portions of six innovative new flavors:

  • Citrus Sichuan Peppercorn: freshly zested oranges and ground Sichuan peppercorns for a creamsicle-like flavor with extra zing
  • Red Bean Almond Cookie: red adzuki beans and Chinese almond cookies for an amazing mashup of mellow and sweet
  • Roasted Barley Tea: inspired by Korean and Japanese Boricha barley tea with rich, nutty overtones
  • Coconut Lychee Lime Sorbet: a tart lime and creamy coconut sorbet with sweet lychee pieces throughout
  • Matcha Green Tea: a smoky classic flavored with ground green tea leaves
  • Thai Iced Tea: a gorgeous sweet cream flavor infused with Ceylon Thai black tea

You will also leave with a 16-oz. pint of your favorite flavor to take home!
