BLEND: 1 TB Andews and Dunham Damn Fine Jasmine Green + 1 TB Boston Tea Company Dragonwell Green in a 600mL pot, bare, steeped two minutes.

A beautiful (not pretty) woman just sat down — intelligent eyes all stormy behind her glasses — and asked you something provocative about your favourite book. Now you know you’ll be up all night talking books and music and philosophy and comedy. You love this woman but don’t necessarily desire here. You feel no jealousy of this woman. You just want to be with her.

That’s how this blend tastes. Sweet and sharp greens and florals. Generous and gentle but no pushover. Slight smokiness from the Dragonwell; sunshine clean-ness from the Jasmine Green.

A simple blend of two complex teas.

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.
