Tea and Food Pairing

Did you know? When the word “tea” is used to describe a mealtime, it refers to the mid to late afternoon meal that is traditional in England and other countries with British roots. At this meal, tea is served along with finger foods such as sandwiches and scones. Tea and food pairing has come a long way since the 5 o’clock ‘tea time’. Today’s chef’s and Certified TAC TEA SOMMELIER® Professionals serve tea with appetizers, mains and desserts just to name a few. Here is a terrific chart to get you started on some exciting tea and food pairing ideas.
