TEA PAIRINGS FOR BLACK TEA…

AFTERNOON TEA 4 TWO...

Black Tea Pairing Ideas

The more robust flavours and aromas of most black teas, as well as the most pronounced tannins, are well suited to pairing with full-flavoured foods such as meat, spicy dishes and rich foods such as roast meats like beef, lamb and venison or heavy pasta dishes like lasagna.

Suggestions:

  • Darjeeling + egg dishes; creamy desserts
  • Keemun + meats; fish; Chinese foods; spicy Mexican, Italian, or Indian dishes
  • Yunnan + highly seasoned foods
  • Lapsang Souchong + chicken, smoked salmon, lemony desserts
  • Assam + hearty foods; breakfast foods; chocolate, custard or lemon desserts
