Have you ever wondered if your favorite cheese would not make the ideal ally of your tea? Cheese turns out to be a very interesting element, indeed once granted to tea, the two proved to form a unprecedented taste combination! However, we could ask the question of how should you go about it? Comté, raclette or morbier, there is a diversity of cheeses, what tea should we combine with which cheeses? Well, this is the challenge that two key players in crafts have launched, Eric, co -founder of Imara Tea, a young tea producer from Africa and Jean François Antony, son of Bernard Antony founder of the Maison Antony., Master refineeur and founder of the Antony cheese dairy. A most original collaboration that will promise you to discover terroirs and know-how!

And for that, we offer you an assortment of unique agreements, merging finesse and roundness of the imara tea and the wide aromatic palette of refined cheeses and developed by the Antony house! Nevertheless, know that we have in no way chosen these two elements. It is obvious that we have not built these agreements harmlessly! This is to ask us for reflection and creativity. Even if the wine remains, in fact, the most used beverage with cheese accompaniment, know that it is far from the only possible agreement. Indeed, it must be aware, that tea is a distant cousin of wine, in fact from an exclusive plant containing a variety of grape varieties, it has this particularity which allows the hot drink to bring out a wide palette of Aromas. It is therefore easier with such varieties of tones to make various agreements with a product as complex as cheese. As for the cheese, the methods of affination devoted to it, allow it to enhance some considerably revealing the flavors of the teas and infusions Imara.

Since you then presage very well that when two actors so important in the world of the fine gastronomy collaborate, they can only build the most sought -after flavors! Through these chords, we wanted to touch all types of consumers, from soft to intense cheese and honeyed tea in wood. The idea was that everyone could navigate! For cheeses with floral and vegetable notes like the Charolais and the Buche de Gers, yellow tea will bring lightness and finesse! As for rather fruity cheeses such as the county, the raclette or the Saint Marcelin, the teas with sweet honeyed notes like oolong tea will sublimate these notes. Finally, for floral cheeses like tomme and ossau, black tea by its finesse and roundness, will help to reveal in a divine way the aromatic palette of your cheese for maximum pleasure! Cheese known for these lactic tones, Chabichou will go perfectly with the infusion at the Hibiscus, which with its fruity and acidulous notes will develop the exotic flavors of the latter. Let's finish with a tea recognized for its rarity and subtlety, we are talking about purple tea, its combination with the morbier was almost obvious. The finesse and lightness of purple tea will intensify the fruity and delicate notes of our Jura morbian.
