From Upton Tea Imports

This tea was produced specifically for Upton Tea Imports.
The process is older, using a longer roasting time and lower temperature.
This produces a mellow tea with a gentle, toasty quality.
The liquor is very smooth, with light fruity and floral notes.

This is a good choice if you like oolongs with a toasty and sweet taste. It does not have an “earthy” taste. I am experimenting with Yxing teapots and I used 10 grams to make about 48 ozs of tea. I did this with a rather large teapot that holds 10.5 oz. This might seem a bit large, but the leaves did eventually expand and take up most of the volume. I started out with a 15 second steep (using water at 212) and added about 10 seconds to each succeeding steep. I got 48 oz after about 8 steeps, and the leaves would have yielded more. So this tea isn’t quite as pricey as it seems. The flavor was rich and delicious.
