Tasty white tea, but I should have probably steeped it a bit longer and used cooler water. This was my 2nd taste test of an Upton Tea and it was very nice but reasonably plain. I haven’t yet got a taste for the variation of unflavoured white teas – the taste is usually very subtle and I think you pretty much have to make sure you don’t make it with water that’s too hot. It was nice, but nothing over the top special. I’ll definitely try some of their other white teas.

Hello fellow tea nerds!

I’m Canadian and my parents are South African, plus I lived in England and Australia as a kid… so I’m rockin some pretty mad British Empire vibe and thus I’ve been a tea fan for quite some time. I am now totally hooked on loose-leaf. It’s super fun to try a bazillion new kinds of tea and choose the right one for a given moment in a day.

My favourite teas are well balanced, mild, maybe fruity/citrusy or with interesting flavours (eg: silk oolongs, grapefruit green rooibos, jasmine silver needle white tea, melon white tea). I also like a solid malty British or other bold style black teas with some oomph (eg: Yunnan Golden Tips, PG Tips).

Let’s nerd out together about why tea is so friggin’ epic!
