Pastry and Zealong New Zealand black

Stronger tea or just more of it to complement this pastry? This time I chose a huge mug. A Zealong New Zealand black tea, 7 grams and 500 ml 80 centigrade for two minutes did the best job! More savoury notes in the pastry and more fruity notes in the tea!

Gerechten: Banket en Tussendoortjes

Cornish pasty and Cornish Tea

Cornish pasty and Cornish Tea. You can’t go wrong.

Stroopwafel and English blend

Most common Dutch tea&food pairing: English blend and a stroopwafel (biscuit with a thick syrup). Biscuit on top of your hot cup of tea so the syrup gets warm and runny. Mmmm

Crisps and China Fujian Golden Monkey

Crisps and a China Fujian Golden Monkey. 7 grams of tea, 500 ml 75 centigrade water and 1.5-2.0 minute steeps. Nice afternoon snack.

Lunch and Iranian black tea

Another great lunch. The local Iranian black tea is once again the hero of the dish! Sweet tea and a spicy dish can be such a delicious combination!

Yorkshiretea and mcvitiesofficial digestives

After an exiting night there is no better way of starting a beautiful new day! @yorkshiretea and @mcvitiesofficial digestives

Kroket sandwich and Sri Lanka Uva

Kroket sandwich (Ragout Sandwich) and a huge glass of Sri Lanka Uva black tea. Perfect combination for a day at the beach

Sour fruit and sweetened black tea

What when they serve you a sweetened black tea? Just pair it with some sour fruits 😁. The acidity balances the sweetness of the tea.

Marmalade on toast and Ceylon Uva Blairlomond

A simple breakfast. Rose’s Lemon & Lime marmalade on toast and a mug of Ceylon Uva Blairlomond. 8 grams of tea on 500 ml of 95 centigrade water. Steeping time 2 minutes. Brings out the citrus part in both tea and marmalade

Dumplings, very spicy soup and Chya

Dumplings, an unidentifiable great and very spicy soup. Chya of a complex tea does the job. Milk in a great tea? When it comes to pairing it with a spice dish: absolutely! Milk balances the spicy notes of the dish, the complex character of the tea becomes more dominant. A real surprise to me.
