A cup of tea alone isn't always enough to make your afternoon wonderful. To get the best flavor out of tea, you should try it with different foods. It's not always about having sandwiches and scones along with tea; rather, people are looking to add something great for their taste buds.
With tea, you can have an interactive experience involving various dishes, desserts, and even chocolate. You can pair almost all foods with tea. Sometimes all you need is a little something sweet to satisfy your sweet tooth. Tea can be paired with your favorite dessert to create a delightful flavor experience.
There are plenty of dessert/snack options that pair with different types of teas. Let's enlist some of the best tea/dessert/snack pairs that you can add to your daily routine.
1. White Tea and Sponge Cakes
White tea is amongst the most challenging type of tea to pair with food. This tea offers an incredibly mild flavor, due to which most foods end up drowning out of the taste of tea. When this happens, it seems as if you are drinking water instead of tea.
One of the best snacks that perfectly pairs with white tea is sponge cakes. These cakes don't offer that much flavor, which means you'll get more out of enjoying the tea on its own. Sponge cake and white tea pairing make the sponge cake seem more flavorful. This combination is a great way to enjoy bland food.
2. Earl grey and Biscuits/Cookies
Earl grey tea not only reduces stress and anxiety but also supports weight loss and digestive health. What about a healthy cookie to go with it? Tea and cookies are complimentary, especially after a long day. What do you do at the end of a busy day? I love to have tea and cookies.
Of course, we all need a warm hug, some tea, and some cookies now and then. Earl Grey tea pairs well with lemon cakes and almond flour lemon cookies made with coconut sugar. One of my favorite recipes ever! Is your cookie jar brimming with goodies this weekend?
3. Green tea and Nuts:
Green tea may be a great option if you prefer nuts. Roasted walnuts go well with green tea. This warm drink is perfect to enjoy in front of a fire on a cold night. The aroma of roasted walnuts perfectly balances the lighter taste of green tea.
Walnuts, in particular, are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are thought to improve mood. The combination of green tea and walnuts boosts brain function and helps treat depression.
Taking a cup of green tea with your favorite nuts can help you feel more energetic throughout the day.
4. Apples with Caramel Dip and Moringa Tea
This tea contains phytochemicals that are beneficial in treating malnutrition. You might be interested to know that Moringa tea can enhance energy levels in the morning. Yes, that's right.
Getting out of bed each morning can be challenging for most people. You will have full energy and dedication to fulfill daily housework and office tasks after drinking this tea. It lowers stress and energizes you so you can perform daily office tasks efficiently.
Moringa tea is popular with health enthusiasts as it has several health benefits. Although Moringa leaves can be brewed as tea from fresh leaves, the dried powder provides greater nutritional value.
For the perfect morning Kickstarter, I'd recommend apples with caramel dip. Served with a soothing cup of Moringa tea, these crispy apple slices serve as a very satisfying breakfast option.
5. Banana Bread and Spice Chai Tea / Masala Tea
Developed from a blend of premium black tea leaves and 100% natural herbs and spices, Chai tea awakens your senses and gives you the perfect kick to get the day started.
Winter calls for a hot cup of spice chai tea and delicious banana bread stuffed with nuts. During cold weather, masala chai protects you from the cold by providing comfort and warmth.
Prepare banana bread without any baking mess; yes, it can be baked using few ingredients at home and enjoy its benefits to its fullest by pairing it with Masala chai. A perfect combination you haven't experienced before.
There's nothing like the aroma of cinnamon baking with caramelized bananas. This delectable treat never disappoints. Light, moist, and filled with flavor.
