I feared this one would be bitter, but it’s smooth and sweet — yet light, not a sticky dessert infusion. The coffee mellows against the white chocolate and almonds, and the mate doesn’t get all sharp. It feels gentle in the mouth, but after you’ve drunk it, feel da power! Good for multiple infusions. Even better sipped from gourd and bombilla.

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.
