茶與月餅的滋味配搭 A Guide to Tea and Mooncake Matching by Blooms Roastery & Craft Tea

中秋吃月餅,大家都知道適合配茶享用,但月餅口味多不勝數,該配甚麼茶呢?月餅與茶配搭得宜,兩者味道會相得益彰啊!來看看我們喜歡的配搭!

Mooncake is the festive feast in Mid-Autumn festival. Tea always goes with the mooncake because it is a classic combination and sipping tea helps to rid the grease and balance the sweetness. Let's see what kind of tea go best with your mooncake.

蛋黃蓮蓉月餅 配 普洱

雖然月餅口味每年推陳出新,但對傳統蛋黃蓮蓉月餅情有獨鍾的大有人在,軟糯香滑的蓮蓉,包裹著金黃出油的鹹蛋黃,鹹甜相間的滋味,就是每年讓人掛念的傳統味道。

糖份和油份含量如此高的月餅,最適宜配搭普洱享用,普洱屬重發酵茶,渥堆發酵時間比一般茶葉長,茶質醇滑厚潤,去油解膩,消滯生津。

Blooms推薦茶品:2008生普洱 & 2000熟普洱

Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake with Salted Egg Yolk paired with Pu-erh

Lotus seed paste is a common Chinese dessert ingredient made from dried lotus seeds. It is a perfect match with salted egg yolk to enjoy the savoury taste in a mooncake.

Traditionally baked mooncake usually high in sugar and fat content. Pu-erh tea is great for cutting through the richness and greasiness.

冰皮月餅 配 窨花茶

不經烤焗的冰皮月餅,形式有點像糯米糍,用粘米粉搓成的雪白軟糯外皮,包裹著主要以豆蓉、番薯蓉等造成的餡料,與傳統月餅截然不同的風格,猶如在吃西式甜品,大受年輕人歡迎。

吃冰皮月餅宜配窨花茶,東方的窨花茶(Scented Tea)與西方花茶(Herbal Tea)截然不同,東方的窨花茶是在烘焙茶的過程中加入花一同窨香,令茶香之中帶有花香,在品嚐冰皮月餅時享用,襯托出月餅的清涼感覺就最適合不過。

Snowy Mooncake paired with Scented Tea

Snowy mooncake is a non-baked mooncake with mochi feel crust and has to be kept frozen. Snowy mooncake can be filled with a variety of fillings such as bean paste, fruit, jam, chocolate and cheeses. This kind of dessert-inspired mooncake is gaining popularity among young people.

Snowy mooncake is the best match with scented tea. Scented teas are created by adding flowers, herbs, fruits and other natural flavours to tea leaves. Just like Osmanthus Oolong, oolong tea absorbs the osmanthus fragrance during the baking process to enhance the aroma.

奶黃月餅 配 伯爵茶

近年成為搶購對象的奶黃月餅,就像奶黃包的餡料放進月餅中,配搭鬆酥的外皮,加上迷你造型實在人見人愛。

奶黃月餅主要由牛油、砂糖、雞蛋及吉士粉製成,混合起來頗油膩,可以配搭伯爵茶享用,伯爵茶是在黑茶中混入佛手柑油而成,令茶味帶有少許花香和西柚香,正好用來平衡奶黃月餅的油膩感。

Blooms推薦茶品:伯爵茶

Egg Custard Mooncake paired with Earl Grey

Egg custard mooncake is a big hit in recent years. It is inspired by egg custard bun in Chinese dim sum and mixed with the production of Western pastry. It is usually small in size.

Custard is made of butter, sugar, egg and custard powder. It is somehow sweet and heavy in taste. It is the best to pair with a cup of Earl grey to soothe the sweetness.

豆沙月餅 配 綠茶

喜歡傳統月餅,卻不喜歡蓮蓉的甜膩,不少人都投向豆沙的懷抱,例如紅豆蓉月餅,豆沙餡綿密幼滑,簡單討喜。

紅豆的最佳配搭當然是綠茶!口味清淡的綠茶更能襯托出紅豆的甜味,綠茶種類繁多,煎茶、玄米茶、玉露都各有特色,不妨試試與月餅的不同配搭。

Bean Paste Mooncake paired with  Green Tea

What is the best match with red bean paste? Green tea definitely. They are truly a perfect match for each other. You can try different types of green tea when tasting the mooncake such as Sencha, Genmaicha, Gyokuro.
