Pair Your Favorite Comfort Food With Bigelow Tea

Rough day? We hear you. Those happen, and you know what? Bigelow Tea is a hug in a mug. So when you add your favorite comfort food to the mix, it’s literally the definition of a *perfect* pair.

While tea goes well with everything, it’s worth knowing that in general, when it comes to tea and food pairings, the stronger the tea, the more hearty the food. So, here goes: a few of our best comfort food and tea pairings. Put them in your back pocket for a rainy (or sleepy or sad or long) day or try it out for the holidays with family!

  1. Comfort = Anything sweet. If chocolate, rich treats and sugary goodness are your go-to, an Oolong or bold black tea – like English Teatime  or Vanilla Chai – will do the trick. Lighter foods, like an angel food cake or French madeleines pair well with a cup of green tea.
  2. Comfort = All things savory. Dreaming of sandwiches? Say, these Ham and Pear Sandwiches or this juicy Chamomile Braised ChickenTry an herbal tea, like I Love Lemon.
  3. Comfort = Salt + spice. Like salt and spice (yup, everything nice)? You’ll love pairing your favorite comfort food with a robust cup of Darjeeling. This flavor pairs well with rich, creamy, or spice-forward dishes.
  4. Comfort = Homestyle cooking. Soups? Mashed potatoes? Meat? Cheese. Earl Grey all the way. Earl Grey’s smooth flavor and bright citrus aroma perfectly complement the strong, earthy flavors in red meat dishes like Orange Beef and Chinese Broccoli, and Lamb Kebabs with Mashed Sweet Potatoes.
  5. Comfort = Breakfast. Maybe you’re a breakfast lover, in which case, you can’t go wrong with Bigelow sweet herbal teas, like Chamomile Mango. Try a cup with these recipes for Vanilla & Cinnamon Baked Challah French Toast or Caramel Apple Crunch Muffins. Yum!

Whatever your feel-good fix, there’s a Bigelow Tea flavor that’s sure to complement. And hey, if that doesn’t turn things around for you, talk it out with a friend or family (perfect timing with Thanksgiving tomorrow!). Whether it’s over a cup of tea or not (though a cup of tea never hurts), it always helps to spend some time, express yourself and share a laugh with your favorites in #TeaProudly style. Enjoy!
