Plaice, a fresh salad and Japan Gyokuro

Plaice and a fresh salad. Beautiful paired with a Japan Gyokuro. 7 grams of tea in a Kyusu, 60 degrees Celsius water and 45 seconds steep. Umami and fish. So good!

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!

Shrimps and China Milky Oolong

Good book, great snack! Shrimps from the grill, China Milky Oolong (not steamed with milk or flavoured). 5 grams of tea in a small gaiwan. 25-30-35-40-45 seconds brew, water just off the boil. Umami all over the place!

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.

Shrimps and Ceylon Nuwara Eliya Lovers Leap Estate

Shrimps and a Ceylon Nuwara Eliya Lovers Leap Estate. Balances the fatty mouthfeel and brings out the sweetness of the shrimp. 8 grams of tea on 500 ml of 95 degrees Celsius water. Steeping time 3 minutes.

Cold Yunnan black tea

I have to admit, I’m not the biggest fan of bubble tea. Too sweet and there is often no tea in it at all. This is different. A black tea from the south of Yunnan province gives a natural sweetness. Cold tea and cold food can be a very good combination!

Sushi and Japan Houjicha

My lunch today. Sushi and Japan Houjicha. Nothing fancy, just a teabag but a great combination.

Tuna cream blini and India Meghalaya La Kyrsiew

Great evening snack. A blini with a tuna cream cheese topping. A India Meghalaya La Kyrsiew SFTGFOP black tea is the perfect companion! 6 grams of tea and 110 ml of 85 centigrade water. 1-1.5-2 minutes infusions.

Mussels and Taiwan Dayuling

Mussels take 2. Mussels and China Tai Ping Hou Kui were a good combination. Today we paired them with a Taiwan Dayuling spring harvest. Maybe an even better combination. 110 ml of boiling water, 8 grams of tea and a 30-30-50-60-70 second steep

Mussels and China Tai Ping Hou Kui

Mussels and China Tai Ping Hou Kui. 8 grams on 110 ml of 85 centigrade water for 30-45-50-60-60 seconds.

Sashimi and Genmaicha

Sashimi and Genmaicha. Obvious but so good!

Fried cod, salad and China Mi Lan Xiang

Fried cod, a fresh salad and a China Mi Lan Xiang. Brings out the pine nuts in the salad, fish notes in the cod and the flowery notes in the tea. The typical “fried” aroma’s seems to disappear.
