Wellness goes hand-in-hand with teas, yet many marketing attempts have made tea drinking complicated that it can become intimidating to enjoy it.
In the same way different wines complement different meals, the wide variety of teas can be used for the same. The right green tea will bring out the flavours of your meal and take your sensory experience to a whole different level.
An important key in tea pairing is that they should complement, and not override each other. Stronger full-bodied teas should go with stronger flavoured food, and vice versa.
1. Smoky Green Tea
Smoky teas have stronger flavour profiles and pair well with stir fried dishes such as vegetables and white meats (chicken and turkey). As compared to black teas, because it has a lighter note, it is an enjoyable and pleasant tea to wrap up an Asian meal. Remember to avoid the sweets!
2. Vegetal Green Tea
As a general guideline, green tea has a subtle and slightly grassy flavour profile, so it is best paired together with mild flavoured foods, such as salads, rice, fish, seafood and chicken.
