1 bag for 250mL water, bare.

As with Stash’s decaf Earl Grey, much nicer when steeped with water just off the boil versus boiling. Treat this blend as a green, and it will serve up nicely spiced black tea without bitterness. I’d suggerst steepig no more than 4 minutes; after that, the cloves can take over and add a medicinal taste. This is a bagged and decaffed tea, so keep those limitations in mind.

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.
