TEA PAIRING: English Breakfast

Rebecca Domorev - Wednesday, August 20, 2014


Fairtrade organic English Breakfast Tea

Every time I brew this beautiful breakfast blend I find myself wondering why I’m not drinking it by the bucket. And here I am once again drinking it straight out of my glass jug (one teacup is never enough!), after all a glass jug is much more fancy than a bucket and there’s no such thing as too much tea. But there’s something missing to finish off this smooth moment and my tastebuds are searching…

Tielka’s Fairtrade organic English Breakfast is quite unique – a keemun congou style black tea from the Hubei Province in China, these unique flavours can be enhanced and brought out with some clever pairing.

So what should you serve it with? 

It’s an obvious choice to serve this with any breakfast (no milk please, this one’s too delicate!), but here are a couple of other ideas you may not have considered:

Cheesecake + English Breakfast

This one is a match made in heaven, nothing can possibly go wrong. I’m itching to get into the kitchen to see what cheesecakey goodness I throw together. Again, no milk – there’s enough milky goodness in the cheesecake to balance these flavours.

Vanilla + English Breakfast

Let’s take this a step further and throw in some fresh vanilla bean. Vanilla bean cheesecake, or how about a vanilla bean crème brulee? Happy times!

What else would you like to pair? Let us know and we’ll get some ideas brewing.
