Wendy and Kym will be taking you through a journey of 5 carefully selected tea and cheese pairings. We will share some introductory pairing concepts to allow you to get the most out of the tasting experience and knowledge from the cheese and tea world that make this a special culinary experience. The pairings are designed to play on your senses, be tactile and possibly unlock new flavours only possible through the pairings.
Why tea and cheese?!
Tea has an incredible diversity in flavour and more similarities to the wine world than you can imagine. It is an agricultural product affected by ‘terroir’ and the tea makers processing methods to finish the tea. It results in infinite styles of tea and a rich breadth of aroma and flavour profiles. But what makes tea fun to pair with cheese is the introduction of the hot infusion. The warming of the mouth followed by the cheese results in a softening or melting of the cheese that can draw out subtle notes in the cheese or tea that might be undetectable otherwise. This is the magic!
We look forward to you joining us!
