We couldn’t resist pairing some of Tea Sparrow’s favourite teas with our favourite food: shortbread.
Snowflake Tea and Creamy Original Shortbread
This almond-infused China black tea incorporates ceylon and coconut rasps to create a marzipan-like flavour that plays sweetly with our original shortbread.
It’s a double-dose of childhood memories, wrapped in a delectably grownup package.
Walnut Green Tea and Sweet Caramel Shortbread
Sencha, candied pineapple and walnuts combine to create this simple-but-satisfying green tea. Its nutty flavour compliments the shortbread’s sweet, chewy caramel flakes and creamy texture.
This pairing is smooth and smoother.
Mandarin Rose and Rich Chocolate Shortbread
Pink rose petals and black tea leaves give this tea its dusky, subtly floral flavour. It’s “delicate wine essence” pairs perfectly with the notes of dark chocolate in our shortbread.
We’re not holding back here: this pairing could be the new wine-and-chocolate.
Buddha Bamboo and Zesty Lemon Shortbread
Listen to your breath as you savour this summery, uplifting blend of bamboo leaves, strawberries and other fruity and floral flavours. Lemongrass elevates the fresh citrus essence of the shortbread to a state of enlightenment.
Find your zen with this divine pairing.
