It is becoming increasingly popular to pair tea with your favorite meals, but Thanksgiving can be difficult to figure out which tea to serve because there are so many competing flavors. What pairs with turkey, but also pairs with green bean casserole? What goes with mashed potatoes and with apple pie? 

Thanksgiving dinner has elements of sweet, sour, salty, and umami.  We recommend either choosing a flavored tea (blended with fruits, florals, or spices) that highlights the dish with a starring role in your Thanksgiving feast OR choosing purists teas that pair with each course.  We put together a list of teas that pair with many traditional Thanksgiving dishes and courses. 

For teas based on which dish you want to have that extra pop from your pairing: 


Turkey – Orange Passion Oolong Tea

Mashed Potatoes – Milk Silk Oolong Tea

Cranberries – Cranberry Orange Black Tea

Traditional Stuffing – Pistachio Pu-erh Tea

Cornbread Stuffing – Genmaicha Green Tea

Green Bean Casserole – Moscow Nights Black Tea

Candied Yams/Sweet Potato Casserole – Hot Cincinnati Spice Rooibos


Pumpkin Pie – Pumpkin Spiced Chai Black Tea 

Pecan Pie – Turkish Bazaar Black Tea

Apple Pie – Apple Strudel Herbal Blend


For teas paired by course, we suggest the following:

Dinner – Vithanakande Black Tea or Dragonwell Green Tea

Dessert – French Breakfast Black Tea or Wuyishan Oolong

After the meal – Pistachio Pu-erh TeaGood Fortune Pu-erh Tea, or Peppermint Herbal


We hope you enjoy!
