1 tsp for 250mL water @100C, steeped four minutes.

Dark and strong. I can barely see to the bottom of the cup. Now, I like a strong black tea, but this is intense. Bitter, too. I’m surprised. Strong and bitter cocoa notes, hard mineral finish. No pepper, no honey.

Man, this one will be hard to finish. It’s almost tarry. I hope it at least packs some caffeine. Maybe I’d like this early in the morning, when I’m more desperate for a caffeine hit than for a nuanced tea. Maybe.

Yeah, I can’t finish this. HARSH.

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.
