6 comfort foods and tea flavours that accompany them!
There have been chefs, sommeliers and food experts who have been working to enrich our sense of fine dining and have paired certain foods with certain wine flavours so that you and I can appreciate the fine pleasures of the culinary art! We all know the basic rules, where red wine is paired with spice-heavy and meaty dishes, while white wines go well with white wines and soft vegetarian flavours. We have been experimenting with newer flavours of wine and trying to pair them perfectly for an enriching meal for decades now, but there have been cultures that have been relishing their meals paired with tea making their meal healthier, more complete, and more satisfying.
