Apparently, 165 million cups of tea are downed in Britain every day — although we have a sneaky suspicion that Londonist Towers is responsible for about a quarter of that. As a nation, we're getting more adventurous in our tea drinking too, with sales of speciality teas going up, and food and tea pairings becoming increasingly common. Basically, think of tea as the new wine — without the hangover.
Step in Pure Leaf, the tea experts bringing tea pairing to London. Indian restaurant Talli Joe is launching a limited edition Indian afternoon tea and dynamic dessert tea-pairings menu, matching delicious teas to tempting dishes, and one lucky Londonist reader will win an Indian-inspired afternoon tea for two.
The limited edition menu has been put together in a delicious collaboration between Talli Joe and Pure Leaf's tea sommelier (how do we apply for that job?), and consists of a vibrant and unique afternoon tea with an Indian spiced twist. You'll tuck into Paneer Pakora, Bombay sandwich, Desi taco, Laal lamb ribs and shaphale, followed up by desserts including Pure Leaf Black Tea with Vanilla infused brioche millefeuille. Is your mouth watering yet?
Veggie-focused restaurant Food For Friends in Brighton, and haute cuisine Grafene in Manchester are also offering tea pairing meals, designed to suit their own menus.
