96

1.5 tsp for 300mL water @95C, steeped three minutes and thirty seconds.

Oh, oh, OH! I can taste orchids! The slightly cooler water brings out this tea’s sweeter, more floral notes, almost oolong-y. I used cooler water by accident. The oak and smoke and minerals remain but are gentler. So clean. Really special.

Preparation

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.
