Tea, cheese & bread, yes please. All the holiday bites I need. Set out a spread that is perfectly paired. Pop over to La Colombe's blog to get the details about each pairing.
1. Hojicha Green Tea with bloomy rind cheese (like Brie) and seeded earthy toasts/crackers
2. Ruby Oolong Tea with Alpine style cheese (think aged gouda) and a dark, sprouted bread (like spelt or emmer)
3. Peppermint Cardamom Tisane with Fromage Blanc Cheese (or any fresh soft cheese) and Brioche Bread
