1 TB for 450mL water, steeped 8 minutes and counting. Rating: 90.

I usually drink this one from a gourd, but that can get very rich and a bit sweet. Today I made it as a tisane. Earthy and sweet and packing a slow-burn buzz, Jumpy Monkey does it again. There’s no one ingredient that makes this blend so good; it’s all of them together. Really different and well worth a try.

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.
