Tea is much more than just a beverage. It is a complete experience, a symphony of flavors, aromas, and age-old traditions.
Just like a wine sommelier, my role is to introduce you to the intricacies of this precious leaf, helping you explore its different varieties, unique terroirs, and preparation techniques that reveal its full potential.

Tea and food pairings are a true symphony of the senses , where the complex notes of tea blend with the textures, aromas, and flavor profiles of dishes.
Whether you are a gourmet connoisseur or a culinary explorer eager for new experiences, you will discover surprising combinations that will awaken your taste buds and elevate every meal.

Imagine savoring a delicate Japanese green tea with floral accents alongside fresh sushi , creating a perfect harmony between marine and vegetal flavors.
Or perhaps you prefer a bold and robust black tea accompanying a piece of dark chocolate, revealing deep and complex nuances.

In gastronomy, tea is used in various ways. It can be infused to create sauces or marinades, added to recipes to enhance flavors, or used in tea-based infusions to perfume creams, ice creams, and pastries.

Whether in a Michelin star restaurant (or/and Gault&Millau selection) or in a creative pastry shop, tea adds a new dimension to culinary art.
Its subtle marriage with ingredients and cooking techniques opens up a range of possibilities for chefs and adventurous food enthusiasts.

Tea and food pairings:
   tea and cheese
   tea and chocolate
   tea and whisky
   tea and meal (aperitif, ...)
   tea and dessert
