Teas boast an exciting array of flavors, and they’re even more enjoyable when you pair them with the right foods — like our crunchy and delicious mac nuts, for example. Try these yummy tea and macadamia nut pairings for a snack that truly delights your taste buds, or serve them to your guests to make a great impression.
Green tea has a very subtle, fresh flavor with a lot of underlying elements that you won’t detect if you pair it with an overly flavorful food. Our Nuts in the Nude, which are simply pure, dehydrated macadamia nuts, have a light and balanced flavor that coordinates perfectly with green tea. For a touch of saltiness, we also suggest trying our Natural Sea Salt macadamia nuts with green tea. They boast a delicious crunch and a light flavor that won’t distract from the green tea’s nuances.

The complex flavor of this oolong-type tea is best complemented by sweet flavors. We recommend pairing it with our Vanilla Crunch Macadamia Nuts, which are flavored with natural ingredients including raw, organic sugar and sea salt infused with real vanilla beans. Another good pairing would be our Caramel Crunch nuts, flavored with brown sugar. For a warm accompaniment to your tea, try the Cinnamon Bun Crunch nuts, which boast a flavor that’s as complex as that of the tea.
Pair this robust black tea with strongly flavored nuts such as our Smoky Garlic mac nuts. It’s also delicious with our Sweet ‘n’ Smoky nuts, which will remind you of a barbecue party. The saltiness and smokiness accentuates the deeper flavors in the tea.
