A great local goat cheese of @dekastanjeboom, whole wheat bun paired with a China Shui Xian Oolong. Cheese aroma’s become more powerful, even more mineral aroma’s in the tea.
Grilled zucchini and a China Anxi Tie Guan Yin Qing Xiang. 2 grams of tea directly in the glass, 95 centigrade water and just keep adding water.
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 .
I love fruits and fruity tea. Physalis and Taiwan Dayuling are a perfect match! 7 grams of tea on 110 ml, 90 centigrade water and a first steep for 30 seconds
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.
China Wuyuan Rou Gui and a traditional fudge. Roasted aroma of the tea pairs great with the fudge. 7 grams of tea and 120 ml 95 centigrade water. 20-20-30-35-40 seconds brew time.
Beautiful evening on the balcony calls for a beautiful cheese from the Jura and tea from China: the Wuyuan Rou Gui. 14 grams of tea, 400 ml of 90 centigrade water and a 30 second brew!
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.
A twelve month old Davidstow cheddar and a fresh Taiwan Oriëntal Beauty. Brings out the beautiful aroma’s of this cheese and makes the tea even sweeter and more complex!
