This is my favorite tea from Upton and among my favorite of all teas. It’s so reasonably-priced relative to how complex and interesting it is. The aroma has woody tones, a hint of skunkiness, and at times seems a bit like a red wine. It has a pleasant bite to it, and the aroma is more than a bit unusual. Although I liked it the first time I tried it, it has grown on me a great deal.

This tea can be brewed many different ways, and I always brew it for multiple infusions. I think connoisseurs of oolongs would do well to try this one…in my opinion it ranks among the best of the greener oolongs.
