1.5 tsp for 250mL water @98C, steeped four minutes, drunk bare.

I got this in a gift pack.

It is good.

It tastes like red velvet cake, and like a mild China black tea. I don’t usually enjoy flaovured teas (though I keep trying one) but this one is lovely and actually satisfied my sweet tooth.

Whenever I make it at the office, everyone asks who made the cookies.

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.
