I weighed 4 T at 17 g, using Earl Grey from Camellia's Tea Shop in London.

Curious that Saunders's original instructions don't involve dry shaking the egg white, but that's probably a good idea.

Added egg white, instructions for making infusion, references, and history.

So much better than its name. One of Audrey Saunders's masterpieces. (4 stars)
