Thanksgiving Food and Tea Pairing

It is becoming increasingly popular to pair tea with your favorite meals, but Thanksgiving can be difficult to figure out which tea to serve because there are so many competing flavors. What pairs with turkey, but also pairs with green bean casserole? What goes with mashed potatoes and with apple pie? 

Thanksgiving dinner has elements of sweet, sour, salty, and umami.  We recommend either choosing a flavored tea (blended with fruits, florals, or spices) that highlights the dish with a starring role in your Thanksgiving feast OR choosing purists teas that pair with each course.  We put together a list of teas that pair with many traditional Thanksgiving dishes and courses.
