1 rounded tsp of leaves for 250mL water, bare.

The best jasmine tea I’ve ever had. I try not to hoard this one, and I do drink others for variety — and to remind myself of just how good these pearls are. Balanced, nuanced, clean and almost intoxicating. No bitterness, no bad flower taste, no sharp leaf. Magic potions must all start with jasmine.

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.
