4 tsp for 750mL tea, 3 minute steep, 100C water.

Okay, there’s got to be a batch issue with Apres Ski. This time I made it from a 25g packet in the Winter Collection set, which I got as a gift, and it’s totally different: no fermented smell or taste, just some decent China (?) black and some sweet figs and a bit of spiciness from the cinnamon. Very agreeable. Balanced and a bit luxurious. A totally different liquor from what I drank last time, which was made for me at a DavidsTea store. This batch is lovely.

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

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