1.5 tsp for 300mL water @98C, rinsed leaves, steeped 4 minutes.


I don’t get along with pu-erhs, but I keep trying them. This is dark, musty and so bitter that I feel like I’ve lost a layer off my tongue.

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.
