Tea + Food
HAVE YOU HEARD OF TEA PAIRING?
A growing number of restaurants around the world now not only have a Sommelier (Wine Waiter) but also a Tea Pairing Waiter, with a full selection of tea on their menu to accompany any meal. More and more restaurants/chefs are recognising the benefits of pairing tea with food.
We’ve prepared the infographics above to show how easy it can be, by pairing some of our delicious tea with various food suggestions to help inspire your creativity in the kitchen – the possiblities are endless..!
And there’s more….
Cooking With Tea
Yes, you can even cook with tea! ***For best results you should only use quality loose leaf tea!*** When you cook with tea we suggest serving that tea with the dish – this will enhance the flavours of the dish
- Organic black tea mixed with herbs & spices makes an amazing marinade for fish or poultry, creating a crust that is healthy and full of flavour.
- Why not create your own delcious broth? Combine Lapsang Souchong black tea with soy sauce and fry off some fresh scallops in the broth. SMOKEY – IRRISISTABLE – MOUTH WATERING
Iced Tea On The Menu
The popularity of Iced Tea is growing rapidly but do avoid the bottled varieties if possible, as these often contain additives and/or sweetner. (A loose leaf fruity infusion such as our Berry Delicious or Hawaiian Paradise offer a much healthier thirst quenching option!)
Try our Berry Delicious with Blueberry or Golden Syrup Pancakes, or with a fresh muffin for breakfast/brunch. If you’re not a morning person, try incorporating iced tea into your favourite fruity cocktail! As we said, the possibilities are endless!
Have our Tea Pairing Infographics helped you to see tea from a different perspective and given you some culinary inspiration? It really is eazy peazy!
