Full leaf sachet in 300 mL 90C water, 3 minutes for the first steep, 5 for the second.

A very nice blend. There’s a hint of cream to the oolong this year. I notice “natural flavour” on the ingredient list; I should really like to know what that is.

Try this one with oolong-temp water to coax out the sweetness of the oolongs and to pamper the Darjeelings. Light colour, light to medium body, mild mucat notes, gentle green notes, plus some cream and somt stone fruit notes. Really, really good.

Rating: 95.

I should add it’s a bit sweet. I expect it might get bitter with boiling water.

Writer and tea fiend. Author of DELUDED YOUR SAILORS, SKY WAVES, DOUBLE-BLIND, and THE SHADOW SIDE OF GRACE.

I prefer straight teas but will try almost anything … so long as it’s not tainted with hibiscus. I loathe hibiscus.

Oolongs and blacks are my favourites.
