We all know about pairing wine with food. The next big thing is pairing tea with food -- from drinking tea with simple meals at home, to multi-course tea pairings offered at Michelin-starred restaurants and headed by a new breed of F&B expert, the Tea Sommelier.


This book introduces the art and science of matching tea with food, to bring out a synergy of flavors. It covers all the basics of tea, from selecting to brewing and serving, and introduces all the world's major tea varieties, from High-Mountain Oolong, to Pu-erh to Darjeeling.

The main focus is on how tea marries with different foods, both Asian and Western. For example, it may be hard to believe, but tea can be a better match for cheese than wine! This book looks into various cuisines as well as specific dishes, recommending the teas that will enhance the dining experience.

Illustrated with over 500 photos, The Tea Sommelier will appeal not only to tea enthusiasts, but to all foodies out there.
