Peaches and almonds go together so beautifully. Not surprising really I suppose, when you consider they are closely related within the same botanical family.
I think many teas pair well with fruit and nuts as a snack, but my particular favorite is a sencha. I love the way the initial bitterness of the tea contrasts with the sweetness of the fruit and creaminess of the nuts, and then the sweetness comes through again at the end.
I have just used up the last of my sencha of the spring sun from Obubu Tea. I love this tea. I make it the way they recommend, with lots of leaf and boiling water for multiple VERY short steeps. This brings out the bitterness that I love in a Japanese tea in the first infusion; subsequent cups are sweet and creamy, a little floral. It cold-brews beautifully too.
I'll be purchasing some more of this delicious tea as soon as I can.
If you'd like to know more about Obubu, have a look at this great interview with Matsu and Akky , the farmers, on the Travel and Tea blog!
PS do you like my incredibly beautiful Royal Doulton 'moss rose' teacup set? I love it SO MUCH!
