Tea Snacks!

by fencerdenoctum » Sep 20th, '07, 11:55

Tea is wonderful by itself make no mistake. I was just curious what types of delicious snacks my fellow tea chatters partake in when enjoying a cup o' tea.

I prefer Girl Scout Shortbread cookies (trefoils here in KY) or something along those lines. A good English style biscuit with chocolate is quite nice as well.

Greens, whites, and oolongs I'm not sure what would go well with them so I stick to snacking with the black teas.

I enjoy drinking tea with scones, cookies or cake.

When I eat, I concentrate on eating. When I drink, I concentrate on drinking. :?

It's funny you started this thread because I fixed muffins, fresh fruit & tea (vanilla chai) for breakfast this morning.

We have "Cinnamon Roll Saturday" for our 4 yr old daughter & I'll sometimes make vanilla, cinnamon or English breakfast tea.

We also have tea party meals at least once a week so I'll fix lots of finger foods--turkey & cheese on toothpicks, fresh fruit, cheese & crackers, finger sandwiches, shortbread cookies, chocolates... basically whatever's on hand.

Remind me to drop in at your house sometime, Henley. ;)


Generally, I like scones with my tea.

I like scones with my tea- a traditionalist in the sense- Earl Grey or English Breakfast, as long as they're served with real clotted cream- mmmhmmmm!

My other favorite pairings are cookies (chocolate chip cookies) with Rooibos vanilla, and lemony treats with really malty, dark teas- I had a lemon and lime cream tart with a beautiful Assam at the World Tea Expo during a dessert and tea pairing class and it was magnificent.

Another unexpected pairing I was introduced to was certain cheeses with tea- I had a really creamy, yet pungent Asiago with a really grassy green- maybe a kukicha...very pleasant.

There is a certain beauty in tea and food pairings- really trying to find a tea that complements a food so well, like the respect given to wine and cheese/wine and food pairings.

Speaking of tea and treats, we just got a ridiculous amount of Mooncakes from Taiwan, in honor of the Mid-Autumn Festival. YUMMMMMMM.... :shock: :D :lol:

MMMMM....Mooncakes! Very good with tea. Hoping for special delivery tomorrow, Xine! :wink:

A big ol' hunk of dark chocolate goes great with black teas and of course cookies for sure!

Darjeelings are great palate cleansers - so the sweetness of whatever it is doesn't overwhelm your taste buds. But I'll drink tea with just about anything. :D

Sugar wafers . . . sugar free sugar wafers if that makes sense.

...now you are speaking my language.

Definately dark chocolate with any tea...cookies will do in a pinch.
