Tea Plus Cheese Pairings

Tea and cheese pairing
As you may have guessed, we enjoy pairing tea with different types of foods. Once or twice a year we host a Tea + Cheese flight at our tea shop in downtown Kirkland, WA.
Here are the teas on a tea flight pairing we did a couple of year ago: White Peony, Sencha Fukamushi, Ti Kwan Yin Imperial, Kenilworth Ceylon and Yunnan Imperial. The cheeses were brie, parmesan, goat cheese, mozzarella, and cheddar. Participants were able to pair five teas with fives cheese for a total of 25 combinations.

Surprisingly, the consensus among many of the participants was that the goat cheese paired well with most of the teas. The creaminess and tartness of the goat cheese balanced well with the earthiness and/or sweetness of the teas. Another favorite pairing was the brie and Ti Kwan Yin. Again the brie’s creaminess brought out sweet notes in the oolong.

We encourage you to try pairing LizzyKate teas with cheese you have at home when you want an afternoon snack. Bon Appetit!
