Tea & Toast: Pairing Food With Tea | Stash Tea


Artfully pairing tea with food can add a beautiful dimension to both the tea and food being served, enhancing one’s entire dining experience.

We’ve put together a list of foods that we’ve paired with our teas for you to enjoy at home. You can also substitute our suggestions for teas that are similar in flavor. For example, our Ceylon New Vithanakande Estate can be swapped for the Ceylon Kenilworth Estate!

The most versatile tea to pair with any food or dessert is Darjeeling. It goes well with just about everything; perhaps that’s another reason it deserves to be called the champagne of teas.
