Was reading last night about Oolong and forgot that I had some left from my last Upton Tea order. Added some honey tonight, which I rarely do. Delicious and relaxing.
6 Tasting Notes
In need for a cuppa, and my stash is dwindling. Hoping this tea helps settle the day down.
Just made a pot and shared it with a friend. While I have enjoyed drinking Pu-Erh for a while now, this was her first taste. And I believe she was pleasantly surprised! I don’t heat the water to boiling , probably closer to 200-210. Personally, I think it gives the tea a softer taste, making it enjoyable rather than a functional tea. If that makes sense.
Although I do like this tea, I tend not to care for teas that taste grassy. Or as the company’s description states, “vegetal.” Although Upton recommends, 180/79 deg, I steep at a slightly lower temp.
This is one of my favorite teas to have at the end of the day. Strong bold flavor and great aroma. For me, the texture is often creamy.
I consider this an everyday tea and always have it in my stash.
