1.5 tsp for 250mL water @ 95C. Steeped 4 minutes. Drunk bare.

My travel mug got ignored this morning as I picked up a (gasp) cappuccino on the way to work and drank that while it was still warm. My tea has cooled to almost room temperature – and that brings out more creaminess from the oolong and a more potent and penetrating taste of peaches. I wonder what this one would be like iced.

Writer and tea fiend. Author of DELUDED YOUR SAILORS, SKY WAVES, DOUBLE-BLIND, and THE SHADOW SIDE OF GRACE. New novel this March called THIS MARLOWE.

I prefer straight teas but will try almost anything … so long as it’s not tainted with hibiscus. I loathe hibiscus.

Floral oolong and complex black teas are my favourites.
