This tea has a very interesting flavor, hard to describe. I’m not sure yet whether I like it or not.

I am a big fan of all green teas, including Japanese green teas, which I am always told taste like grass and are not very good. While there certainly is a very distinct spinachy, grassy taste to most japanese greens, I think the flavor is so much more complex than others give credit. This tea is very good and tasty.

Good, delicate white tea that isn’t too expensive but still tastes pretty good!

Dragonwell (Lung-Ching) is my favorite green tea, and this one by upton is pretty good, however I don’t think this one is the best offering around as it fails to completely capture the nutty accents that make dragonwell so good. It is best when steeped at 175 degrees for about 2 minutes.

This tea has a great smoky flavor that is characteristic of gunpowder, but it is also a very smooth and refreshing tea!

This is one of my favorite oolong teas, it has a very delicate and sweet taste and can be steeped three or four times.

Bio

I began my tea adventure when a counselor at Spanish camp introduced me to yerba mate. From there I soon started to embrace all different kinds of tea.

Currently my favorite tea is dragonwell, with silver needles being a close second. I really enjoy trying new teas and experimenting with different steep times and temperatures,
