From Upton Tea Imports

An extremely well-made tea, with an inviting aroma and a fresh, complex cup. The beautiful leaf sets have an abundance of tips, characteristic of an extra-fine picking. So far the first flush season has been challenging. The early release and special production of this tea sparked fierce bidding among competition, and we are pleased to have secured this special offering.

My palate is undeveloped, but some teas give me a taste of greatness. I cannot put my finger on it absolutely and resort to some of those much-mocked ipsedixitisms of the soi-disant oenophile, such as “this cougar of a cabernet is a saucy seductress with a Meerschaum of criollo overshadowed by a wench of a plum and a slippery nuance of black current which dabbles in an unsullied yet impertinent side serving of a cumulous cloud of Pringles Potato Crisps.”

Well, I can speak like a pretentious snob if I want to, but my tongue is not as far reaching as my vocabulary. Like the truculent tourist from the mid-west, I’ll say only that “I don’t know if it’s art, but I like it.”

With this tea, I do know that it’s tea, but I am not sure why I like it. It has a very light, very subtle floral sweetness. And it makes me understand the devotion that many drinkers have to Darjeelings.

Any SFTGFOP first flush should be a pretty great cup, if steeped just so. And I seem to recall the Singbulli from Upton being a sterling leaf.
