1 rounded TB for 450mL water, bare.

Decaf black tea is often terrible. But caffeine keeps me awake, and I can’t get my favourite tisane, so, depserate, I thought I’d try this one.

Not bad. I’ve tasted far worse. It does retain body and taste of a good Ceylon, but it still has that bitter, almost burnt harshness that I’ve detected on every decaf black tea I’ve ever tried. Still, good enough to enjoy as a bedtime cuppa. I wouldn’t bother with it during the day, though.

Boiling 5 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.
