Join us November 10th at 7:30pm For an In-House Tea Tasting
$20 Admission Fee
On November 10th, at 7:30 p.m., Tin Roof Teas will be holding our annual Tea & Cheese pairing. Right in time for the holidays, it will give our guests a few ideas for their upcoming celebrations. Two of our infused honeys, apples, and grapes, will be paired with our cheese selections.
Why tea and cheese? When most of us think of a cheese tasting, thought of a fine wine is not very far behind. It would surprise most, that tea can also pair very well with cheese, as it also contains tannins. Tannins are a substance that exists in grapes and tea leaves among other things and produces that tart, astringent taste that you may experience after drinking a deep red wine or black tea. It also lends to the color of tea. Without tannins, both wine and tea would lack that complex taste and beautiful color. Not all teas are tannin-rich; exceptions are White and Green teas, which contain very little tannins, while Oolongs are in the middle, and Black teas have the most. When thinking of teas to pair with your cheese plate, sticking to Black or Oolong teas are good, but including a Green tea with a grassy or vegetal note will round out your selection wonderfully.
