Beer – preferably the Belgian company, and also wine, obviously. But tea and cheese? It is perhaps not what the average living room to ‘un mariage harmonieux” suggests. And yet. Nothing is less true, if we have a tea expert Fabienne Effertz may believe. “They are two completely different flavors together wonderfully complete, and a new gourmet taste sensation to do experience’, says she. Effertz has its reasons, and wants us to convince with a tasting.

So We took ourselves to the test, and got some surprising combinations with Swiss cheeses presented and noted that the pairing is far from a bad idea, on the contrary. Here are some flavour combinations that you will definitely have a chance to give if you’re still skeptical:

Cheese: Emmentaler AOP des Grottes

Taste: Light bitter touch

Tea: Sencha Okimudori (green tea) – Japan

Garnish: Vijgenjam, apricots and dates
