Some feel that Oolong tea has such a complex flavor and aroma that it should be consumed on its own. Pairing foods with Oolong teas is a little trickier since Oolong’s character tends to fall somewhere between a black tea and a green tea. Lightly oxidized Oolongs tend to go very well with foods that would be paired with white wines. On the other hand, full and medium oxidized Oolongs would go with foods that are normally paired with red wines.
Lightly oxidized Oolongs tend to have a sweetness that pairs nicely with sweet, rich seafood dishes, such as scallops and lobster.
The toastiness and full flavor of medium and dark Oolongs matches well with stronger flavored foods. Dark Oolongs are excellent with grilled foods, spicy or tangy dishes, and Chinese or Thai foods.
For a wonderful ending to a meal, try pairing an Oolong with a sweet dessert like crepes or Pecan pie.
