From Upton Tea Imports

A modestly priced China green, yielding a cup with delicate smoky nuances and lots of character. Delicate vegetal notes and sweet, fruity hints add depth and complexity. The pleasing astringency follows in the finish.

Upton does a great job of explaining their teas without degrading into pseudo poetry or lengthy theatrical tomes. I got a sample of this to try but kind of wishing I had gotten more (but no, I don’t need any more tins of green tea! Bad Amy!).

The aroma of the wet leaf is very fresh and almost floral tasting. I am finding this to be very soft on the palate and am not finding the astringency they speak of. It is lightly vegetal like roasted corn and with a hint of smoke but also a fruit like sweetness (perhaps lychee).

This is an excellent selection for the price – $5.80/125 grams as I write this. It also resteeps very well.

I read their print catalog like a novel ;)

I do too. It’s in the bathroom though – lol!

Bathtub reading!

In fact – I dropped mine in the bathtub and it got all wrinkly. :)

So I finally ordered from Upton Tea Imports, mostly a batch of samples priced from $1 to $1.50. Their shipping is very inexpensive, and Alex Z at RateTea.net has given good marks for many of their teas. This one intrigued me, and is the first I tried.

The aroma of both the dry and wet leaves is amazingly more like a very green oolong. The flavor is also like a fall oolong, with hints of smoke, sweet grass, and a light fruity aftertaste. Yet this is a green, and carries a bit of astringency and freshness as well. A very pleasant tea, and one I look forward to spending more time sipping.

I had my eye on this one recently.. ;-)

Thinking that it may be a while yet before post-holiday budget allows for discretionary tea funding (poverty builds character, yes?), but when it’s available, an experimental order from Upton may be in order. They appear to be a good, solid bang-for-yer-buck supplier.

@gmathis – I am glad I ordered from them, and managed to keep my order small by ordering one sampler combo, and a half dozen samples of teas I wanted to try! And yes, poverty builds character… ;)
