95

1.25tsp for 300mL water @100C, steeped four minutes.

Clearing out my tea cupboard and re-discovered this beauty. Fragrant and flavourful Darjeeling, though it does benefit from slightly cooler water; Ill make the next batch with water closer to 95C. Boiling water bring out plenty of muscatel and body but risks scalding the green tippy bits. An excellent Darjeeling and a real bargain on price.

Tea Campaign sells only Darjeelings and works hard to ensure good conditions for tea workers. You can buy in bulk. The rice per 50g on the 2014 Second Flush works out to $2.90 CAD. (Shipping extra.) This is an exceptional price.

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.
