Afternoon tea pairing guide

20 Mar, 2014

The perfect teas to accompany afternoon tea.Particular teas work well with particular tea-time treats so if you’re baking for a special occasion then why not experiment with the type of teas you offer?

Afternoon Tea

Our Swirling Mist and Bai Mudan white teas work well with chocolate based recipes such as brownies, cakes and cookies. Choose darker chocolate varieties (minimum 70% cocoa solids) for an even more delicious combination.

Jasmine works perfectly with foods with a higher fat content. So try our Moonlight Jasmine and Jasmine Dragon Pearls teas with flapjacks, Danish pastries and other pastry based recipes.

If you’re baking scones or serving savoury sandwiches then go for our Darjeeling, Classic Earl Grey or Traditional English Breakfast tea. Or for caffeine free options try Rooibos or Earl Grey Rooibos.

Our refreshing Moroccan Mint tea works perfectly with recipes incorporating honey and pistachios.

Banana bread, carrot cake and Dundee cake work particularly well when paired with our Indian Spice Chai and Cape Malay Chai. In fact any fruit based cakes and treats will work well with these teas because they enhance their luxurious spice notes.

And to round off your afternoon tea extravaganza we recommend Good Dragon which has been prized in China for over a thousand year as an aid to digestion.
