As Easter approaches, households around the world prepare for festivities filled with joy, reflection, and, of course, delicious treats.

A delightful way to elevate these treats is by pairing them with the perfect cup of tea. In this guide, we explore some quintessential tea pairings for a selection of delectable Easter delights from around the world. 

Torrijas x Island of Tea - Gold

Torrijas, Spain's version of French toast, are a traditional Easter dessert, enjoyed for their sweet and indulgent qualities. Paired with Island of Tea Gold, they create a harmonious blend of flavours, with the tea's mild notes enhancing the rich caramelised flavours of the torrijas without overshadowing them, ensuring a perfect balance of taste sensations with every sip and bite.

Pizzelle x Oriental Collection Caramel Dream

Pizzelle, originating from Italy, are delicate cookies with subtle crispiness, often flavoured with anise or vanilla, resembling waffles. Pairing them with the Caramel Dream tea from the Oriental Collection adds a creamy richness of caramel, enhancing the Easter indulgence without overwhelming the gentle sweetness of the pizzelle. This sugar-free tea creates an elegant, palatable combination, offering a delightful culinary experience reminiscent of a dreamy paradise.

Easter Bread x Fruit Infusions Blood Orange

Easter bread, a traditional delicacy from Italy and a staple of Easter celebrations worldwide, varies from rich and buttery to subtly spiced. Pairing it with the Blood Orange blend from the Fruit Infusions collection adds a refreshing burst of citrusy delight, enhancing the richness of the bread without overwhelming it. The zesty notes of blood orange create a harmonious fusion of flavours, elevating your Easter feast to a new level of sensory delight.

Hot Cross Buns x Magic Fruits Mango Pineapple

Hot cross buns, with their fragrant spices and sticky glaze, are an iconic Easter tradition in British households. Pairing them with the Mango and Pineapple tea from the Magic Fruits range adds a refreshing twist with exotic flavours, like ripe mango and tangy pineapple, balancing the warm spices of the buns. This harmonious fusion of fruity tea and aromatic buns will elevate your Easter brunch to a tropical paradise of flavours.

Babka x Black Essence Chocolate Mint

Babka, a sweet bread from Eastern Europe, is a decadent treat for Easter, featuring layers of chocolate, cinnamon, or fruit. Pairing babka with Black Essence Chocolate Mint tea enhances the indulgence with the blend's rich flavours of dark chocolate and refreshing mint, perfectly complementing the chocolatey notes of the bread. This combination creates a luxurious tasting experience, blending richness and freshness to impress guests during Easter celebrations.

Pretzel x Specialty Classics English Breakfast

Soft pretzels originating from Germany and popularised in various European countries are known for their satisfyingly salty crunch that evokes a nostalgic Easter gathering experience. Dunking a warm, freshly baked pretzel into a steaming cup of English Breakfast tea enhances the indulgence, allowing the rich and malty flavours of the tea to mingle with the buttery softness of the pretzel. This combination creates a harmonious balance of textures and flavours, making it an ideal Easter treat.

Just like exploring different flavours can help you find the perfect match, discovering the ideal tea to accompany your Easter feast can make each dish even more enjoyable.  So, venture into the world of tea pairings, experiment with different blends, and let your palate guide you to delightful combinations that will make this Easter celebration truly unforgettable.
