89

1.5 tsp for 300mL water @ 100C, steeped 4 minutes, drunk bare.

An excellent Assam. Bold, not bitter. Notes of freshly baked bread, roses, and sunshine. Medium to heavy body. Drenching Assam taste. Good malty pucker but not so astringent as to tear the mouth off ya. Sweet notes. I prefer it steeped a little longer.

My favorite unflavored from Stash.

I have been passing through their catalog lusting for all the tea paraphernalia. (I may have purchased a couple of potty teacups but we won’t say for sure.)

GAH! Pretty, not potty! What a horrible autocorrect!

Stash carries gorgeous stuff. They were the first tea company I fell in love with. Back in university, 1989 onwards … the cafeterias had Stash bags, and I fell hard for the Orange Spice and Jasmine Spice. Some of their herbal blends were just plain weird, but I admired the creativity. Some of their teacups — oh, I swoon over them.

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

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

Oolongs and blacks are my favourites.
