1 bag for 250mL water 100C, steeped 4 minutes 15 seconds, drunk bare.

Dry tea bag aroma: coppery Ceylon and faintest pepper.

Liquor: copper. not much fragrance beyond wet earth.

Oh. Oh oh oh, this is good, gorgeously balanced: Assam giving malt, heft, and body, Ceylon being all coppery bright, Darjeeling making that even brighter, with just the finestest peppery bite of Yunnan. Despite not being aromatic, this is a delicous blend.

Writer and tea fiend. Author of THIS MARLOWE, 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.

Floral oolong and complex black teas are my favourites.
