Description

Tea and jam pairing workshop

In our tea and jam pairing workshop, you will learn about the culture of tea drinking in Malta. Our Maltese culinary tastes and palates are polarised, with half the population drinking tea and the other half drinking coffee!

This is because of the strong British and Italian influences on the islands. Tea drinking was introduced to Malta by the British in the 1800s. Even today, most Maltese drink their tea with milk, and most are fond of BOP (Broken Orange Pekoe) tea.

Workshop content

In this tea and jam pairing workshop, you will taste various types of tea as well as pair them with some very nice home-made jams prepared locally by Maltese gastronome Andrea Critien using the fruits grown in her garden.

Get ready to taste some classic jam flavours such as strawberry, orange marmalade or peach, together with the more exotic flavours of pomegranate, kumquat and passion fruit. These will be perfectly paired with the best single-blend superior Ceylon teas – Pekoe, Orange Pekoe, Green tea and Black BOP.

Teatime is a state of mind: restfulness, refreshment, indulgence. So you can attend our Tea and Jam Pairing Workshop any time of day, with exquisite teas paired with home-made jams to share with a party or savour in a personalised one-on-one workshop.

Many of us are still just beginning to learn of the concept of pairing tea with jams. The art of tea pairing is still very much evolving in the West… just as good wine augments good food, and wine brings out the flavours of your dish, so too with teas.

The right jam can truly enhance the taste of your tea … equally, get the pairing wrong, and the tea can be overwhelmed.

TASTING : 4 different Ceylon highland teas paired with 4 different Maltese home-made jams.

WORKSHOP DURATION : approximately 1 hour
MAX. NO. OF PARTICIPANTS : 2.
