1.5 tsp (estimated, bulky needle tea) for 300mL water @100C, steeped 10 minutes.

I did the long steep on purpose … for a change.

This is a fresh packet, just ripped open. I feel so badass drinking this tea — the name, the flavour profile. So, what do I get with a 10-minute steep?

Mahogany liquor. Cocoa, sweet potato, roots, and something wild — wind in the trees, maybe. Some mineral in the finish. A slight sharpness that does not become astringent. Strong flavours but no bitterness.

Excellent.

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.
