From Upton Tea Imports

This outstanding selection was produced in West Java at an elevation over 1500 meters. The tea is composed of pluckings of tender buds, which are hand rolled and dried at low temperatures in order for them to retain their unique character. The infusion is refined, with a sweetness and delicate caramel flavor note. The addition of milk unlocks a malty nuance. Production capacity for this tea is extremely limited.

I wanted to try a West Java tea so I got a sample of this with my last order.

Wow, to me this tea is nothing like the description that Upton gives it. Sweetness? Delicate flavor? Where?? I got a dark orange cup that was extremely tannic to the point where I could not drink it plain. I am not fond of overly tannic astringent teas so I had to dump some soymilk in here, as well as sugar in order to make it palatable. I plan to finish the cup I have but the rest of this sample is going in the dustbin, bleah. I hope my stomach does not revolt.

I brewed one cupweight (thanks to my new digital tea scale from Upton) in 6 oz water just off the boil for 3’30". I tasted it without milk, and it seemed interesting, but a bit raw-edged from the tannin. A little bit of milk really helped and made this into a very satisfying cup of tea: it was flavorful but not heavy at all, with an interesting note of something that reminded me of chocolate, and a very smooth finish. Really a nice way to start the day, as though someone you like has chucked you gently on the cheek with the nappy grain side of a tan leather glove. On the pricey side, though.
