Basque “burnt” cheesecake is simply magically, deliciously combined with sheng (raw) pu’er. The creamy caramel of the dessert and the floral-woody astringency (be it bright or soft, doesn’t matter) of sheng pu’er complement each other perfectly. Of course, with a good black tea that has caramel notes, this cheesecake also works well, but it will be a combination on the likes-attract basis. While sheng pu’er and basque cheesecake make a combination of opposites — which is not only very tasty, but also very exciting. We sincerely recommend it.
