Pasta pairings
If you are preparing spaghetti bolognese or tomato-based lasagna, opt for a spring Darjeeling with its vegetable notes which match the scent of the fruit-vegetable. If you are making a nut and gorgonzola pasta recipe, serve a Butterfly of Taiwan, an Oolong with honeyed notes that creates a contrast with the powerful, milky flavor of the cheese.
Risotto pairings
Risotto lovers are not left out. Genmaicha Yama, a bancha green tea, accompanied by grilled rice, will pair wonderfully with the flavor of a Milanese or creamy risotto. If it is made with mushrooms or truffles, a few Premium Yunnan Buds will work wonders with their woody aromas and nuances of tobacco and mushroom. Finally, if you are cooking a seafood risotto, there is nothing like a very iodized green tea like a Tamaryokucha Imperial.
