1.25tsp for 250mL tea @82C, steeped 1 minute 30 seconds.

Creamy for a green, though not the least buttery. Nutty. Slight mineral finish with a sweet aftertaste. Potent leaves are good for several steeps. A favourite.

180 °F / 82 °C 1 min, 30 sec

Writer and tea fiend. Author of DELUDED YOUR SAILORS, SKY WAVES, DOUBLE-BLIND, and THE SHADOW SIDE OF GRACE. New novel next spring 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.
