Ronnefeldt is a brand of exquisite teas. The company was established by Johann Tobias Ronnefeldt in Frankfurt am Main in 1823, and is today regarded as one of the finest tea brands in the world. Although it is presently not available to the retail market in Malaysia, Ronnefelt has made its appearance at a selected number of discerning hotels such as Hotel Equatorial Penang.

Ronnefeldt's operations in the Asia Pacific region is ably led by Miss Stephanie Mölders, whose role is to establish and grow familiarity to the Ronnefeldt brand. In Malaysia, Ronnefeldt teas are distributed by beverage specialist ExclusiviTea.

In collaboration with ExclusiviTea, Ronnefelt held an exclusive Ronnefeldt Tea Experience at Hotel Equatorial Penang on 14 & 15 July, 2017. The event comprised the Ronnefeldt Tea Cocktail Night at Nadaba on 14 July, and the Ronnefeldt Surf & Turf Buffet at Nada Lama on 15 July. A select group of individuals from social media was invited to the experience, and my wife and I were among those privileged to an invitation.

Ronnefeldt Surf & Turf Buffet DinnerRonnefeldt Surf & Turf Buffet Dinner (15 July, 2017)


I embarked on my Ronnefeldt Tea Experience with an analytical, almost clinical, approach. As the dishes selected for the pairing range from the light and subtle to the heavy and strong, I decided to sequence the dishes I partake likewise. They are as shown below.

It was a wonderful dining experience, to pair and to match various Ronnefeldt tea with Nada Lama's incredible array of dishes. I started by following the suggested pairing instruction. Once I have done that, I started to experiment, trying similar dishes that were not in the listing, for example, pairing smoked salmon with Ronnefeldt's Japan Sencha Kiyomizu tea or the Green China Spring with braised crabs. This is a wonderful culinary opportunity that has to be savoured and enjoyed slowly, and I hope every diner at the event enjoyed it as much as I did.

My thanks to ExclusiviTea for having invited my wife and me, to Ronnefeldt for creating such fine teas, and to Hotel Equatorial Penang for having hosted this unique experience.
