the 2012 version by Upton Tea. a rather nice aroma, but weak taste with dominant astringency & sour bitterness of stale green tea. disappointing. kind of like a not very lucky pick from chinatown.
3rd steep continues some wood & moss, 4th too faded to be satisfying. This tea’s simpler flavor profile (compared to some I’ve had) may be related to the fact that the wet, unfurled leaf lacks reddish edges or spots, being an even dark, glossy green. Good tea but not thrilling.
