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.
