Ah, Christmas. The time for mulled wine and markets, seeing relatives you only see once a year, exchanging gifts with friends and family, and - one of our favourite bits - the incredible food!
It’s true, each December brings an array of delicious treats and feasts that always seem so much better than the food you have during the other holidays during the year. Well, we’ve stuck our heads together and tested out which of your favourite blends will be the perfect pairing for all of the tasty snacks that everyone seems to have during the festive season.
So, pop the kettle on, grab your favourite people, and give these pairings a good taste-test together…
TIME TO GET A TASTE-ON.
ENGLISH BREAKFASTSTRONG & MALTY.
Perfect with all things chocolatey and rich, whether it’s your boxes of Christmas chocolates or your tins of buttery biscuits. We love it with a really good milk chocolate to bring out the sweeter, caramel notes.
GREEN TEAGRASSY & HOPPY.
Perfect with your cheese board - we especially love it with an extra creamy goat’s cheese. It really brings out the grassiness of the tea, giving you a delicious, well-rounded flavour.
MOROCCAN MINTSTRONG & MINTY.
Perfect with a dark chocolate pudding. The sweetness of the mint balances out any bitterness in dark chocolate, making this a combination for the ages. After-dinner mint chocolates, anyone?
LEMON & GINGERFIERY & CITRUSY.
Perfect with a classic carrot cake, as thickly iced - cream cheese icing all the way! - as you please. The spice, creaminess and sweetness all make for a delicious, warming wintery treat.
