Tea and Food Pairings and a Tetley Giveaway!

curry and tea


Tea and Curry? Well I would never have thought of that before. However, it appears that just like you can enhance your dining experience knowing which wine matches best, the same can be said for tea. Tetley have teamed up with culinary consultant chef, Lee Maycock, to devise some tantalising food matches for each tea blends. 

The full flavour of black tea makes it ideal for pairing with very rich and flavourful foods. Tetley Original goes well with lamb and beef dishes. It’s also great with sumptuous chocolate dishes. Tetley Extra Strong has been specially blended to be a fuller flavour black tea, and goes brilliantly with rich pasta sauces, roast dinners, stews and curries. I must say it was unusal to drink tea with my curry, but it was also nice. My husband was impressed with the taste of the Extra Strong tea saying "it was a really nice cup of tea."

Green Tea is matched to delicate falvours. Seafood, chicken, fruit or salad. Green Tea Lemon is zesty and refreshing and an ideal accompaniment to a light lunch.

Redbush is naturally caffeine free and can be served with or without milk. If you have a sweet tooth why not try it with a drop of honey. It is recommended to be eaten with nutty dishes like my favourite Turkish dessert, Baklava.

Decaffinated teas are great for those wanting to cut down their caffeine intake. I drink these after midday as any more caffeine in my system would keep me awake all night. It is therefor recommended as an accompaniment to evening nibbles and dessert.f you are interested in the Art of Tea blending you can read about it here. Tetley have kindly offered one of my readers the chance to win the Tetley selection below.
