1 tsp for 250mL water @100C, steeped 4 minutes, drink bare.

Well, it smells like a nice Yunnan tea. Getting some pepper notes as it cools, but that’s about all. Flat and dull. A real disappointment.

You should try more leaf and very short steeps. There is a wide spectrum of flavor there.

Thanks for that. I’ll try it.

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