From Upton Tea Imports

The cup is exceptionally smooth, with interesting muscat and fruity nuances, along with the balanced pungency of a top quality first flush tea. This tea was harvested from clonal jat (varietals) at the same time as the China counterpart (TS72). The cup from the China jat is slightly sweeter, while that of the clonal variety is slightly thicker. For comparison, consider buying a sample of one and a packet of the other.

Evidently it’s unearthing old Upton samplers day for me…

Usually I’ve liked everything from the Temi estate and this is no exception. Very similar to a darjeeling in aroma but in terms of flavor it has a definite woody flavor and seems more astringent than I would normally prefer. I should have brewed it at a lower temp, but a touch of stevia perked it right up!

p.s. I brought a new tea strainer to work and hope it doesn’t disappear!

>The cup is exceptionally smooth,
Does the “smooth” refer to the lack of thickening related to pectin and oxalic acid or something?

I’m not sure about this description at all.

>with interesting muscat and fruity nuances,
Somewhere over the muscat? I will try the China one for this.

On the other hand, its unique fruity nuance was more apparent to me, which was close to a sort of acid taste somehow.

>along with the balanced pungency of a top quality first flush tea.
pungency… maybe?

>The cup from the China jat is slightly sweeter,
I think so, too.

At the same time, this clonal may be “just” sweet. The sweetness of these two was quite different to me.

That’s supposedly because I can’t distinguish sweetness from China characteristic.

> while that of the clonal variety is slightly thicker.
Probably…? Is this that important factor, by the way?

>For comparison, consider buying a sample of one and a packet of the other.
No need for comparison, indeed. Buy the China! lol
