1.5 tsp for 300mL water @ 98C, steeped four minutes, drunk bare.

I found some! I found some in a kitchen cupboard whole looking for some tea to ice.

Musk and pepper and honey and forest. Refreshing. No longer my favourite Yunnan -Verdant’s Golden Fleece stole my heart - but an excellent one, a brilliant example of what’s so good about Yunnan teas.

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.
