This month’s pairing is Hojicha Japanese roasted green tea with one of our delicious Canadian Cheeses.
Finely cut dried tomatoes and sizzled basil, mixtogether. Take aplain unsalted cracker put a thin piece of St-Honoré triple cream cheese and top with the tomato mixture. Serve with Hojicha Japanese green tea. A surprising delicious pairing! The nutty and roasted taste of the tea brings out the roasted flavour from the tomatoes; the cheese smooths the basil and the acidity from the tomato and balances everything perfectly.
You can buy an excellent high grade hand crafted Hojicha from Shizuoka Tea Garden on our website. For those who prefer the quick solution, you can buy a powdered Hojicha very convenient and good for baking.
