Pairing The Right Tea With The Best Food: A Match Made In Heaven
Tea comes in many different varieties. More and more people are combining tea drinking with a meal or snack; certain teas are more suitable depending on the type and flavor of the food eaten.
Tea drinkers are looking for products such as tea infusers and are trying different loose leaf tea varieties to enhance their tea drinking experience.
The food they eat also has an impact on the experience they have. Green tea, an increasingly popular and healthy type, is often subtle in flavor. It is therefore suitable for being combined with rice, chicken, or seafood. In addition to salad, it also works well with Asian or Middle Eastern food.
Certain varieties of white tea are good with basmati rice and other foods with a very mild flavor. Oolong tea's complex flavor and aroma can present a challenge when pairing it up. The greener types are better when eating seafood and rich, sweet foods. Darker varieties are often suited for drinking with duck and grilled meats, or even with fruit and dessert.
The rich flavor and tannins of black tea often make it a good match with meat and spicy food. Some varieties work well with Mexican, Italian, and Indian dishes, while others are ideal to have during desert or when eating flavorful foods such as smoked salmon. Pu-erh tea is great for digestion, benefiting the drinker after a large meal. Its flavor is also compatible with red meat and stir-fried foods.
Another great pairing is chocolate and tea. Variations of the teas mentioned here, such as Dragonwell green tea or earthy pu-erh tea, go well with dark chocolate. Rich green teas such as macha taste great with milk chocolate. There are several other varieties which compliment the flavor, depending on the type of tea and the dessert chosen.
