1.5 tsp for 300mL water @90C, steeped Western style, drunk bare.

My favourite tieguanyin. I love the fruit and floral notes. I am now going to bask in an afternoon of steep after steep of this beautiful tea.

Verdant’s having a sale on this one, as they’ve not got much left.

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.
