A few weeks ago I met with Ashley (she coordinates educational classes at Murray’s Cheese in NYC). I brought the teas and she did the cheese (happily we had access to an endless variety of cheese from Murray’s). It made for an amazing afternoon.

We found that the best pairings enhanced both the tea and cheese, but also introduced a new, third flavor that wasn’t there before. An oolong and aged gouda revealed honey notes that neither the tea or cheese had on it’s own. Darjeeling and Comté brought out the flavor of roasted chestnuts…

And don’t forget about Lanai. And Kauai! Hopefully we’ll make it to Molokai on the next trip. Everything is close enough so that these could all be day trips…but I like taking my time with travels ^-^
