Sweet dreams are made of teas. During the winter, we enjoy sitting by the fireplace with a cup of Bigelow®Tea. The Bigelow® Benefits line supports relaxation and wellness. We paired three Bigelow® Benefits teas with three varieties of cheese. We are excited to share our tea and cheese pairing with you.
What is Bigelow Benefits® Tea?
Bigelow® Tea is our preferred tea. It’s spec-tea-cular. Bigelow® is a 3 generation family owned tea company that has produced quality delicious tea blends for over 75 years. The company has a wide array of teas from black to green to fruit flavored. The Bigelow® Benefits line features everyday teas that fuel the body with healthy ingredients that support your well-being. Every cup counts. We purchased our teas from ShopRite. These teas are also available in K-Cup form. It’s time to stock up on teas for wellness, relaxation and self-care.
How to Host a Tea and Cheese Pairing?
This winter, skip the wine and cheese pairing and opt for a tea and cheese pairing. We selected Moringa & Black Tea, Citrus & Oolong Tea and Chamomile & Lavender Herbal Tea for our tasting.
A tea and cheese pairing is a perfect winter activity. We complete a dry January every year to help us reset and start the year focused on fitness and wellness. This winter sit back, relax, and focus on self-care, while sipping some tas-tea teas.
How to Decorate for a Tea and Cheese Pairing?
We created our tea-riffic tablescape with a white table runner, white candles and 2 floral arrangements with white roses, daisies, babies breath and berries. With this setup, anyone can tea proudly.
You’ll need a teapot to pour the hot water into your tea cups. Drinking tea gives us sereni-tea.
Each place setting featured three tea cups, a cheese board and a green napkin. The cheese board consisted of Camembert, Manchego and Goat Cheese. The key to a beautiful cheese board is to slice your cheese in various shapes and sizes. Next we added bread and crackers, followed by cranberries, pomegranate seeds, blueberries.
Bigelow® Benefits Moringa & Black Tea with Camembert Pairing
Our Tea and Cheese Pairing started with Bigelow® Benefits Moringa & Black Tea, paired with Camembert. This tea is a blend of black tea, moringa, ashwagandha root and turmeric. This tea helps with clarity and focus. It is a perfect beverage to kickstart your day. We recommend pairing this tea with a soft and creamy Camembert. The Camembert balances the dark, bold and astringent flavors of this tea.
Bigelow® Benefits Citrus & Oolong Tea with Manchego
We paired the Bigelow® Benefits Citrus & Oolong Tea with Manchego. This bold citrusy tea has a smoky oolong flavor, and helps us stay lean and fit. We recommend pairing with this citrus tea with a salty-cheese like Manchego.
Bigelow® Benefits Chamomile & Lavender Tea with Goat Cheese
Our final pairing is Bigelow® Benefits Chamomile & Lavender Tea with Goat Cheese. Sip this tea at the end of the night because it will help you sleep. The sweet soothing chamomile and lavender help you relax. After a cup of this tea, we felt like Sleeping Beauty for the night. Getting better sleep is one of our 2021 goals. We paired this tea with a tangy, soft goat cheese, which compliments the chamomile and lavender flavors.
This winter, we are going to be home a lot more often. We are focused on wellness, self-care and relaxation. We will be sipping these Bigelow® Benefits Teas to help us focus, be lean and fit, and sleep well. Bigelow®Tea is the right choice, the only choice for us.
Life is like a cup of tea it’s all in how you make it.Anonymous
