Very nice information! It's surprising to me how different teas taste better OR worse depending on the food eaten with them. Same goes with wines (which I know a little more about). If you just tell someone this, they have a hard time understanding and think it's a bunch of bluff, but to experience it, you'll truly understand. Thanks for the info.

Hi Teresa, and you are so right. It *does* make a difference. I know very, very little about wine and wine and food pairings, but I'll never forget my girlfriend pairing a delicious homemade chocolate mousse with a glass of Port. Oh my!! Chocolate and port! A match made in winery heaven!!

This was a fun post! Good information for any tea lover! I can't seem to get away from Black tea though, I just love vanilla!

I will have to try Kenya tea with chocolate. I usually opt for coffee when having anything chocolate. Everything else of course gets tea. Thanks for the tea tip.

I agree it's very nice information to associate/match a nice tea with a certain dessert.

Thanks for sharing...
