1 rounded TB for 450mL water, bare.

Yes, yes, YES! Oh, baby, that’s one beautiful Assam. Trash-talks Kopili Estate Assam (I have to keep the competing tins separate so there’s no clagning brawl in my kitchen) and makes Captain Assam stare intently. Dry leaves are very tippy and smell a bit like raisins and sunshine. Tastes malty, of course, but not heavily so — there’s a real brightness in this Assam. Body is almost heavy and - wow- creamy. Mama’s got her a new favourite. Comforts and fortifies. Drink this, and you can do anything. Or at least you might think you can. ;)

Boiling 4 min, 15 sec

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.
