Iranian food and Iranian black tea

Iranian food is among the best food I have ever tasted. Iranian black tea is among the sweetest, most fruity and flowery teas I know. They seem to be a match made in heaven! 14 grams of tea on 1 liter of 95 degrees Celsius water and a steeping time of four minutes.

Cantuccini alle mandorle and China Fujian Golden Monkey

No Vino Santo to dip in the Cantuccini alle mandorle but a very sweet China Fujian Golden Monkey. 10 grams on 400 ml of 75 centigrade water for just one minute. Multiple infusions needed.

Marmalade on toast and Ceylon Uva Blairlomond

A simple breakfast. Rose’s Lemon & Lime marmalade on toast and a mug of Ceylon Uva Blairlomond. 8 grams of tea on 500 ml of 95 centigrade water. Steeping time 2 minutes. Brings out the citrus part in both tea and marmalade

Breakfast and Iranian tea

Breakfast. Plain and simple. Great Iranian tea doesn’t need much to pair with.

Cinnamon roll and Golden tea

Fresh cinnamon roll and a absolute perfect made sweet and fruity Golden tea!
6 grams of tea, 500 ml of 85 degrees, 2 minutes steeping time.

Scones, blueberry jam, cream and China Fujian Golden Monkey

Sometimes you accidentally come across a very special product. We visited a farmers shop called the Kastanjeboom, located just outside the small town of Bunschoten-Spakenburg. They sell a lot of beautiful local products but they also make their own clotted cream. The best I ever tasted. Read their story. Scones, Blueberry Jam and their great cream. Paired with a China Fujian Golden Monkey. 7 grams of tea on 500 ml, 75 degrees Celsius water. A true delight!
