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.

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.
