Oolong and pu-erh pairings
There are two categories of oolong tea: light and dark. Light oolongs will go with scallops and rich seafood like lobster. Dark oolongs pair better with dark poultry such as duck, and desserts with maple syrup.
Pu-erh teas have been aged, giving them a distinctive earthy flavor. And because they’re strong, they need equally robust flavors to match. Think greasy dishes such as a chicken stir-fry.
Green tea’s ideal partner
Green tea has a light and subtle flavor but can hold its own against delicate flavorings. Mild dishes like seafood, melon, or salads are perfect.
