I drank all of my last order from Upton without adding a single tasting note. I will try to do a beutter job with this set of teas from Gong Fu.

This was a fine Keemun. The dry leaf has a pleasant sweet smoky smell. The liquor has a pleasing aroma as well and the flavor includes the burgundy notes you would expect in a fine Keemun. Very enjoyable! This tea delivers what you expect from it, which is a flavorful cup of a Chinese classic.

Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

Library director living in Spencer, Iowa. Trying to spread the good news about tea. Focused on camelia sinensis, only marginally interested in tisanes.

My favorites (so far) are congou and pu-erh (both types). I like some greens, lots of oolongs, and whites and yellows, but I enjoy drinking black tea day in and out.

Besides, oolongs are best enjoyed prepared in a manner that demands a little more time and care. So, I like to save those times for when I can fully enjoy the experience.
