5 tsp for 4 cups of the in a Breville One Touch Teamaker, 4-minutes steep, basket/agitate cycle on.

Much more of a scent of distant flowers on the tea today, nuances of bread and — er — roses. But not perfume roses, almost toasted roses, with some malt a few octaves down. Hard to describe. Delicious.

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.
