From Upton Tea Imports

Produced in the Yunnan district from heirloom tea bushes, this selection has a pedigree as unique as its character. The flavor is ethereal, with delicate, sweet notes that some have likened to apricot and apple. The finish is mellow and sweet.

This package of tea has been hiding from me. I came across it the other day, and to my surprise I ordered it a year ago. It was still sealed, and its amazing flavor is still intact. Sadly, though, it appears that this tea is no longer available.

A lovely yellow tea. Sweet apple-y notes. Crisp yet mellow. Ahh… my precious yellow tea. How I love thee.

My first yellow tea and… I’m apathetic. I expected something else, something different, something magical. Especially at this price pointed and limited supply. Alas, It never happened.

The dry leaf aroma is very intriguing, it smells of flowers and mandarins. Mandarins are my favorite part but unfortunately they don’t transfer to the brew. The brew… here is where the disappointment strikes. It is completely watered down. I’m drinking water, lightly flavored with Silver Needle. There is a tiny bit of sweet fruitiness lurking in there as well but it is hardly noticeable. Nothing more.

Off to the second infusion. All the fruitiness is gone, Silver Needle flavor is stripped down and only water remains… you get the picture. I feel like dumping it down the drain.

I need to try other yellow teas now.
