Nougat and Da Hong Pao Oolong

During my visit to Simon Lèvelt I bought this combination: a fruity nougat and a Da Hong Pao Oolong. Nougat made the tea very fruity, tea reduces the sweetness of the nougat and enhanced the nutty tones. 8 grams of tea in my gaiwan (they sell great ones at their shops), 110 ml of 90 degrees Celsius water and steeping times of 25-20-25-30-35-40-45 seconds.

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.

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 .
