A menu for tea pairing in Ecuador


Pairing is like marriage, in fact it is the art of marrying food, but unlike a life-long commitment, it is a momentary and fleeting pleasure that rewards with the most amazing experience. Pairing with wine is better known, but this art is applied to all drinks, perhaps the most extraordinary is with tea, as it is a drink with so much history behind it.


Complexity and perfection are two trapping qualities and tea has both. According to Chinese tradition there are three decisive factors to make this drink perfect: the water, the kettle and the way it is heated. In fact, it is said that coal is the friend, the kettle is the father, and water is the mother of tea.


Water itself, like all mothers, is vital for the drink to come out perfect. Lu Yu, Tea Master (733-804) indicated that the highest quality water is the one that slides slowly through the stalagmites; then the rain and then the one that comes from the mountain. In this case the worst is the well or lake, because it does not have the dynamism of the previous ones. This alone already demonstrates the complexity of the tea and what its perfection is due to.

So, pairing food with tea is already an art. At Tippytea Blends we take care of all the details to prepare the best tea and blends, and with that same attention to detail we create a menu to pair each cup of this millenary drink.

Waffles

A popular breakfast these days that is served at various locations. However, in Tippytea Blends it has something that others do not: they are made out of hibiscus flower and Chai to pair with this drink.


Cheesecakes

Our version is cold and creamy. There is matcha, which is ground green tea that has 10 times more antioxidant content than normal green tea, due to its concentration. Matcha is sprinkled on top of our cheesecake and the flavor is indescribable.

We also have organic bilberries produced by communities in the Ecuadorian Sierra in a responsible way.

The one with organic roses is another experience that mixes the perfumed flavor of the petals, the cream cheese and the biscuit texture. For the less risky, there are Oreo, Nutella, red fruits ...
