Tea & Recipes
Drinking tea and good food. Two of our favorite things to do! Tea has been used for centuries in countries such as China, Japan and India. It is also enjoyed by people all over the world today. But how should you drink tea? And which food goes well with tea?
The first thing to know about drinking tea is that there are many different types of tea. There is white tea, green tea, black tea, oolong tea, pu erh, tisanes and many more.
The above teas have their own unique flavor profile. Some teas are sweet, some are bitter and others are savory, and each is best for a particular type of food.
For example, green tea is often combined with fruit or fish, while black tea is usually combined with savory dishes. Oolong tea is somewhere in between; it is usually served with both sweet and savory dishes.
In this section we will discuss several recipes in which tea and herbs will play a central role.
