The first tea I’m trying from the 47 samples I just ordered from Upton Tea… yeah, I know I went a bit crazy ordering!

The tea brews a beautiful amber color with a sweet, yet subtle earthy scent. It is incredibly smooth with a full bodied taste. It possesses an ending dry note that lingers in your mouth until it slowly turns into an airy sweetness.

The first tea I’ve had from my plethora of samples… this is definitely setting a high standard for the others!

Bio

I’m currently attending college. I’m just about done with my undergraduate study in art history. In my free time I love playing piano (Chopin!) and composing music. I also enjoy writing poetry. Really, I just love the Romantic period in art (with the exception of the visual arts- go figure) and continually draw my inspiration from that era.

I’m very interested in nutrition and using herbs to heal. Herbs also taste great, so that’s just another bonus! Before I got into tea, I got into herbs first. I think I’m pretty weird in this regard. I can’t imagine many people would find drinking a decoction made from tree bark to be very tasty… and yet I do. Purely for taste, I love peppermint and ginger more than any other herb. I could, and do, drink those almost daily. I also love rooibos and honeybush.

I have a penchant for Indian & Chinese black teas and Japanese greens, but I’ll try anything once. I’m trying to get into other types of tea as well. I prefer to drink my teas plain, but I’ll very seldom add honey to some herbs (ginger).
