Amaretti, apricot, clotted cream, Linden honey and Taiwan Dong Ding

Amaretti, apricot, clotted cream and Linden honey. Perfect with a Taiwan Dong Ding 2019 spring flush. 9 grams on 110 ml 95 centigrade water. 25-30-35-45-60 seconds. The flowery Oolong becomes fruity and flowery, the Amaretti very nutty. The mouthfeel is so creamy!

Macaron and Taiwan Dong Fang Mei Ren

Macaron and Taiwan Dong Fang Mei Ren. Reduces the sweetness of the macaron and makes them nice and chewy. The tea becomes even sweeter than it already is! 7 grams of tea on 500 ml 90 centigrade water. Infusion time of 1-1.5-2 minutes .

Chocolate and Taiwan Aged Oolong

Cacao butter from Ecuador, milk chocolate from Madagascar and 90% pure chocolate from Panama. Taiwan Aged Oolong (10 years old) is the winner with all three options. 9 grams of tea on 110 ml of boiling water. 30-45-60-60-70-80 seconds

Jura cheese and Wuyuan Rou

Beautiful evening on the balcony calls for a beautiful cheese from the Jura and tea from China: the Wuyuan Rou Gui. 14 grams of tea, 400 ml of 90 centigrade water and a 30 second brew!

Zucchini and China Anxi Tie Guan Yin Qing Xiang

Grilled zucchini and a China Anxi Tie Guan Yin Qing Xiang. 2 grams of tea directly in the glass, 95 centigrade water and just keep adding water.

Sumatran chocolate and China Feng Huang Mi Lan Xiang Oolong

Bought some great @krakakoa Sumatran chocolate at Simon Lèvelt. Paired it with a heavily roasted China Feng Huang Mi Lan Xiang Oolong. Chocolate became more complex and less sweet, tea lost some of its roasted aroma. Great combination! 8 grams of tea on 180 ml of 95 degrees Celsius water. 20-20-25-30-35 seconds brewing time.

Cuore di Mandorla and roasted Dong Ding Oolong

The Sencha isn’t a hit with all Cuore di Mandorla. Just had some friends over so I needed a tea to pair all different cookies. The intense roasted Dong Ding Oolong is a good friend! 8 grams of tea in my gaiwan, after a good rinse, infusions of 30-35-40-45-50-60 seconds. Great way to start the weekend.

Grilled cheese sandwich and Taiwan Oriëntal Beauty / Dong Fang Mei Ren

Grilled cheese sandwich paired with Taiwan Oriëntal Beauty / Dong Fang Mei Ren. Not for tea drinkers that don’t like strong cheese flavours or very sweet and fruity teas

Yam biscuits and a China Guang Dong Phoenix Dan Cong. The Oolong brings out the Yam flavour of the biscuits and reduces the sweetness. Roasted aroma in the Phoenix gets more pronounced .
