1.5 tsp for 350mL water @ 100C. Steeped 5 minutes. Drunk bare.


Layers. Each layer tastes slightly different, until you’ve gone from oak to honey. Some Yunnan notes. Some faint bergamot sharpness. Some Darjeeling-y taste, too, but Nepal Black is a distinct tea. These leaves come from Yunnan cuttings planted in Nepalese soil, if I understand correctly, and the result is quite pleasant. Light in colour and body. No malt. Very easy to drink.

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

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.
