1 TB per 500mL pot.

A twiggy oolong with gorgeous, varieated leaves. Not detecting any of the fruity notes Formosa Oolongs sometimes boast. This one brings to mind tobacco more than peaches. The leaves are not tightly rolled. It’s a bit temperamental and needs a careful steep. I like it, but I like my Ti Kuan Yin better.

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.
