1 tsp for 250mL water @ 100C. Steeped 4 minutes.

(I got the Winter Collection sampler pack for a Christmas gift and am sampling all of it today at work. I enjoyed a pot of Apres Ski, then a cup of Hot Toboggan, which was great this time as I knew to expect apple cider and not green tea. Am now on the Snow Bunny. Alpine Punch, already sampled, is home, waiting for me to toss it out.)

A good body to the tea, which complements the slight nuttiness. I don’t get much banana flavour, just a slight aroma. I love walnuts, so I enjoy the almost-bitter walnut aftertaste. I’d think this one could get bitter fast if steeped beyond 4 minutes. I like it, but I doubt I’ll buy it on my own.

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec

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.
