A spicy twist on Christmas for 2021 – we’ve joined up with Spice Kitchen UK to bring you Spices of Christmas – six recipes from around the world paired with Ahmad Tea wintery blends. What better way to enjoy the festive season than to experiment with new flavours? That’s why we reached out to spice producers, Spice Kitchen, to share their chefs’ spicy takes on Christmas. We then paired these with our blends to make a six alternative festive feasts to try in the run up to Christmas.

Shredded Jerk Chicken Burger with Apple Refresh

The fourth in our series – a hearty Shredded Jerk Chicken burger packed full of flavours of the Caribbean. Created by Sanj Singh Parmar and perhaps not your typical food and tea pairing, but we found the sweetness of Apple Refresh tea superbly balanced out the heat from the chillis and spices.
