Shane Talbotts Takes on the Tea Pairing Challenge: Sweet Cheese Blintzes

It’s been a while since the staff at Talbott Teas challenged Shane to a tea pairing challenge.  We were inspired when we learned about an event taking place this week in Chicago.  

The 6th Annual Chicago Sister Cities International Festival will transform Daley Plaza into an international village filled with food, music, dance and merchants, August 9-12, 2011. 
Where: Daley Plaza
Time: 10:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Daily  The event will feature food vendors from:

1. Kasia’s Deli (Warsaw, Poland)
2. Macondo (Bogota, Colombia)
3. Sandy’s Restaurant (Belgrade, Serbia)
4. Shokolad Pastry & Cafe (Kyiv, Ukraine)
5. Stella’s Market (Global)
Our challenge for Shane was to pair a Talbott Teas flavor with Sweet Cheese Blintzes from
440 North Oakley Boulevard
Chicago, Illinois 60612

Of course Shane came up with the perfect Talbott Teas flavor to serve with the Sweet Cheese Blintzes.
