1 scant TB for 500mL water, bare, 4-minute steep.

I’ve written a lot about this blend already, but today I’m picking up some delicious new notes in the aftertaste as this cuppa cools to tepid: floral (from jasmine) bright honey (Yunnan?) winey-ness (Keemun?). I bet this blend would be lovely cold-brewed.

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.
