1.5 tsp for 300mL water @90C, rinsed, then steeped 3 minutes 30 seconds Western style, 1st infusion.

Happy sigh.

Sweeter than that 2013 harvest. Creamy and floral, with some melon notes and some mineral in the finish. Complex and nuanced. So very good.

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.
