Pairing Tea with Foods

Pairing tea with food is an adventure with different flavors as it provides an extensive range of tastes. Tea is a palate cleanser or mid-course transition to bridge a person from one course to the next. Just like wine, tea can also be used as a flavor enhancer to complete the culinary journey of a dish.

Breakfast and Brunch

People in the West generally prefer black teas for breakfast for their higher caffeine content, compatibility with milk, and complementary to Western breakfast foods.
