2 Oolong Tea Pairing Tips for Beginner
Like you, we are frustrated when a simple cup of joy has been made so complex. Because pairing the right tea with the right foods will enhance the taste of both the tea and the food, we have put together this little guide to help you with your culinary adventures - 2 Oolong Tea Pairing Tips for Beginner.
Do you find teas too complicated?
Remember, an important key in tea pairing is that they should complement, and not override each other.
Oolong tea has beautifully complex notes, which make it perfect for pairing with a diverse range of foods. If you are at a buffet, and have a wide variety of foods to taste and sample, oolong tea would be your best bet.
1. Lighter oolong teas
Lighter and greener oolongs are fragrant, slightly sweet and floral-aromatic, so they tend to go well with lobster, scallop and other sweet-rich foods.
For something a little more adventurous, pair with light salty/savory snacks! The sweet and salty contrast will be such a delight.
2. Darker oolong teas
Darker oolong teas (which are more prominent in flavor) will compliment stronger foods like grilled dishes and smoked meats. Notable examples are such as duck meat, smoked salmon and ham.
Dark oolongs can also be paired with sweet maple desserts.
Hope these tips help you to serve the right teas to your dinner guests confidently!
