All things tea!

Which one of our teas pair best with Grapes?

 Teas Tested:

  • China Sencha Green Tea
  • Egyptian Chamomile Herbal Tea
  • White Organic Tea
  • Black Darjeeling Tea
  • Gardens of the Provence Herbal Tea

Grapes:

  • Red Grapes
  • Red Grapes with Brie and French stick
  • Green Grapes
  • Green Grapes with Brie and French Stick

Brie:

  • Private Selection Soft Ripened Double Cream Cheese Brie

White French Stick

Tea types tasted with Red Grapes Grilled Panini, Red Grapes, and Brie. Red Grapes and Tea  
China Sencha Green Tea

 YEP

 NOPE

Both the tea and Panini keep their own distinct flavor but blend nicely together.  Red grapes on their own with green tea made the tea taste tart.
Black Darjeeling Tea

 

 YEP

YUK!

The brie in the panini made the black tea taste creamy.  A good combo.  Red grapes with the darjeeling was the worst combo.  Very sour!
White Organic Tea

 YEP

 1VOTE = YES

 1VOTE = KINDA…

White tea is still distinct tasting but blends well with the Panini.  Works better than green tea. Red grapes and white tea together was a better combination, but by far, not a favorite.
Gardens of the Provence Tea

 NOPE

 NOPE

Mmmmm…Not disgusting, but probably one of the strangest combos we’ve ever tasted…
Egyptian Chamomile Herbal Tea

 NOPE

1 VOTE = YES

1VOTE = KINDA…

The Chamomile didn’t mix well with the Panini, but when tasted with the grapes alone, the tea took away the sourness of the grapes.
Tea types tasted with Green grapes Panini, Green grapes, and Brie. Green grapes and Tea  
China Sencha Green Tea

 YEP

 NOPE

Light, naturally sweet combo with Panini. Green grapes on their own made the tea taste bitter.
Black Darjeeling Tea

 YEP

 YUK!

Again, works well with the cheese in the Panini, but green grapes taste horrible with black tea.
White Organic Tea

 NOPE

 NOPE

Since the green grapes have a milder taste than the red grapes, the white tea becomes overpowering and does not blend with either combination.
Egyptian Chamomile Tea

 WINNER!

 WINNER!

ABSOLUTE WINNER!  The creamy brie brings out a fruity, creamy taste in the chamomile. This really is delicious. The tea and grapes alone work great together, too!
