That being said, here are some types of healthy food you can pair with tea:

Bread

Bread is well-known to be made from enriched flour, which comes with a number of vitamins and minerals – including thiamine (B1), which helps develop one’s nervous system; riboflavin (B2), which helps boost one’s energy; niacin (B3), which helps reduce one’s cholesterol level; and folate (B9), which helps repair one’s DNA. It’s also a good source of iron, which helps the body produce enough hemoglobin (red blood cell). Paired with tea, the health benefits of bread will not just be limited to providing vitamins and minerals.

TIP: You can make your own bread – or more specifically, wheat bread – with a bread machine like those seen on http://breadmachineworld.com/use-bread-machine/. This is best paired with green tea, which helps release both the bread’s mild flavor and the tea’s fruity flavor.

Seafood

Seafood is well-known to be good sources of vitamin A, which helps improve one’s vision and skin; vitamin D, which helps strengthen one’s bones and teeth; phosphorous, which helps detoxify one’s body; magnesium, which helps calm one’s nerves; and selenium, which helps normalize one’s thyroid. It’s also a great source of omega-3, which helps the body prevent heart diseases caused by high cholesterol level and high blood pressure. Paired with tea, the health benefits of seafood will not just be limited to these aforementioned health benefits.

TIP: You can pair off light oolong tea with steamed fish dishes like those with scallops and lobsters, which helps bring out the ocean’s flavors: salty, yet syrupy. You can also pair off dark oolong tea with grilled fish dishes like those with salmon and trout, which helps bring out the ocean’s rather exquisite flavors: toasty, yet tasty.
