Pasta Puttanesca and Gyokuro

One of my favourite dishes. Pasta Puttanesca. (Don’t translate). Pasta and seafood. Nice and spicy. Not easy to find the perfect partner. A shockbrew Gyokuro did a great job! 8 grams of tea, 250 ml of 60 centigrade water, shock over 250 grams of ice. Just perfect. Umami all over!

Coquilles and China An Ji Bai Cha

Coquilles and a China An Ji Bai Cha. Normally I pair the coquilles with a Japanese green tea but this is also a great combination! 8 grams on 110 ml. 70 centigrade water. Sweet and savoury aroma’s enhanced in the coquille, roasted aroma’s in the green tea.

Sushi and Japan Houjicha

Sashimi and Genmaicha

Sashimi and Genmaicha. Obvious but so good!
