And as a bit of fun in food pairing we asked Jess to bring along some of her delicious Gorwydd Caerphilly. Made by Maugan and Kim Trethowan at Gorwydd Farm, Ceredigion, Gorwydd is deliciously mild with a really more-ish texture and taste and an intriguing mushroomy taste as you get closer to the rind. We love it!
But, most amazingly we found that Darjeeling Second Flush was fantastic with the Gorwydd. Award-winning, our Darjeeling Second Flush is incredible! The Jungpana bio-dynamic tea estate, nestled high on the misty slopes of the mighty Himalayas, makes the most enchanting tea. Not a surprise really; the family have made extraordinary Darjeeling tea for centuries!
It is a sensational tea packed with flavour – floral, fruity, citrus, pistachio. The Gorwydd brought out a delicious mango fruitiness. It is stunning, you should try it! We decided all we were missing was a piece of fruitcake to make the perfect afternoon tea!
Heres to more fabulous discoveries with lovely people.
