1 bag for 250mL water, bare.

An old favourite. Really good for bagged Darjeeling. Light body, but not as thin as Stash’s Darjeeling Spring. Unmistakeable muscatel taste. Light to medium brown liquor. Gets a bit plummy when steeped over 5 minutes — I like that — with a very faint floral scent, almost of roses. For reasons I do not understand, this Darjeeling tastes better when made one cup at a time versus made in a pot. Refreshing.

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.
