Tea parties are a lovely way to catch up with friends and enjoy some delicious treats. At our bakery and coffee shop, we have a wide selection of macarons and teas that can be paired together for a delightful experience. Here are some tips on how to pair tea and macarons for your next tea party:
First, consider the flavors of the macarons and teas you want to pair. For example, our lemon macarons go well with our Earl Grey tea because the citrus in the macaron complements the bergamot in the tea. Similarly, our raspberry macarons pair well with our Rose tea because the fruity flavor of the macaron complements the floral notes in the tea.
Next, think about the intensity of the flavors. You don't want a tea that overpowers the macaron or vice versa. For example, our pistachio macarons pair well with our Green tea because the light flavor of the macaron complements the delicate notes in the tea.
Finally, consider the texture of the macarons. Some macarons have a crisp exterior and a chewy interior, while others have a soft, fluffy texture. You want a tea that can cut through the richness of the macaron and cleanse your palate. A Lavendar tea is a great option for pairing with our rich chocolate macarons because the light, floral notes of the tea balance out the richness of the macaron.
In conclusion, pairing tea and macarons can be a delightful experience when done right. Consider the flavors, intensity, and texture of both the macarons and teas you want to pair for the perfect combination.
