Coffee or Tea

I've long held that certain goodies are best with coffee and optimal with tea. Here are a few examples, based on my personal taste.

1. Coffee: Great with chocolate chip cookies, toffee cookies, apple pie and pound cake just to name a few.

2. Tea(black): great with macadamia nut cookies, lemon chess pie and oatmeal cookies.

What do you think? Do you have any coffee/tea pairing preferences?
I don't drink coffee, and I think almost all sweet things - cake, cookies, pastries, etc go better along with a hot cup of tea. I'm sure coffee would work pretty well too.

After a sweet bite, a few sips of tea cleanses the palate and provides a good contrast to the sweetness, so you don't get saturated the next bite will be just as sweet. And if the sweet is chocolate, the tea warms the mouth so the chocolate melts more and releases more flavor. I'm sure most of this works with coffee as well.

I drink a lot of room temperature Green Tea, all day long. 🙂

It goes with everything or alone.

@Jacko1971 I've seen the 1st Season of Picard! It's incredible, the work, the writing, the nostalgia. I cried!

@Qwertyvsme I wasn't keen. It didn't inspire me to watch the rest..
Qwertyvsme · 46-50, F
@Jacko1971 Yeah it's like that sometimes. I loved the idea of them working on the fringes instead of so bound by the law and order of the Federation. And they were all ready to ride for Captain Picard.

i used to have an exceptional fondness for rye chips (one of the parts of 'bold' chex mix) and earl grey tea.
Qwertyvsme · 46-50, F
@wretch That would be even better!! I'm sure it would be much healthier.

@Qwertyvsme i feel like the ones i remember were salty and a bit garlicky... id very much lean into that.
Qwertyvsme · 46-50, F
@wretch sounds lovely!

I don’t drink tea, but in days of old when I did, tea went well with rich tea biscuits, and dunked, of course.
Qwertyvsme · 46-50, F
@Carissimi Mmmm, I wonder if I've ever had a real tea biscuit?
LunaRavenWolf · 31-35, F
I like simple tea biscuites with tea and a slice of cake with coffee any cake goes
I prefer not to eat snacks during coffee or tea breaks between meals.
I avoid anything with added sugar.

If I'm out all day hiking, I carry unsugared dark organic fair-trade chocolate, nuts, fried fruit, hard boiled eggs, a large par-cooked green veggie salad, and 2 litres water.

Hot cocoa for me
Qwertyvsme · 46-50, F
@NativePortlander Hot cocoa is awesome too.
i grind coffee along with my tea and brew a 75 degree chia fruit sour cream

then pour it all down the sink

i'm an experimenter

it's the journey that counts
destination is irrelevant

@rebis Hey I feel you on the process being as enjoyable. Seems like a lot to go through just to toss it all. lol

Coffee wins, and if I can have tiramisu and a cappuccino, that's a little bit of heaven!

I'm sure tea is good with something, just not for me 😁
Qwertyvsme · 46-50, F
@Ontheroad Hmmm does sound delightful!

@Jacko1971 Hahaha!! Ah the 80's was such a dramatic time.

Coffee with any kind of pastry or doughnut is good for me.
I will drink tea on occasion
Tea for toast and marmelade. Coffee for a croissant!
Qwertyvsme · 46-50, F
@SW-User Makes me think of my gran, she was big on marmelade and I fell in love with it because of her.
Coffee with breakfast and desserts.
Tea all by itself.
