how to host an emma pairings party

One of our favorite ways to entertain is by hosting a pairings party. We sample our teas with many other foods to find fun and unique pairings. When done well, a pairing will elevate individual flavors into a harmonious choir.

Inspired by Spring and it's freshness, we play up the grassiness of our Emma Genmaicha Green Tea with savory rosemary tea cookies. Next we introduce Brabander Goat Gouda. This cheese's slight gaminess brings out the nutty notes from Emma's toasted brown rice which is blended with green tea leaves. Finally, we finish with Belgian Dark Chocolate with a hint of sea salt.

Wow your guests with this pairing the next time you entertain!

emma pairing with sugarfina

We. Love. Candy. Many of our favorites are from Sugarfina, a chic candy boutique and online shop. We value the same things: exceptional ingredients, gorgeously giftable packaging, and of course, great taste! The sweet and savory flavor of our Emma Genmaicha Green Tea comes from the blend of grassy green tea and nutty toasted brown rice. Salted chocolate is a perfectly balanced profile to enhance Emma's nuanced flavor. Did we mention the caramel? Trust us, this pairing is incredible!
