100

1.5 tsp for 300mL water, 100C, steeped 4 minutes.

Dry leaf: almost half bright green, the rest amber and brown. Very few twigs. Pretty.

Dry aroma: earthy and mineral with something sharp and fresh, faintly floral.

Wet leaf: the green is less bright. Otherwise unchanged.

Wet aroma: earth, rocks.

Liquor: light copper, very heady with florals and muscatel. A bright, fresh, and crisp black tea, medium-strength, very like an assertive Darjeeling yet still its own tea. I’m sure I can also taste cold fresh air. Delicious. Great value for money.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 10 OZ / 300 ML

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.
