From Upton Tea Imports

This unusual tea has dry leaves of differing shapes and colors. The end result is an outstanding cup with a complex flavor profile that is unmistakably Oolong in character, with woody hints, delicate floral notes, and a sweet lingering finish.

Wanted to try a new oolong this morning and this ended up being the winner. I’ve never had an oolong from Japan before, so this was exciting. The leaves themselves also look completely unlike those of any oolong I’ve seen before. A blend of black and greenish leaves with wispy tan bits and stems.

Toss 6 grams of this into the gaiwan and steep without doing a wash. The roast is immediately apparent and quickly fills the nose. It’s got that salty thing going on, especially in the first sip. And it evolves into something floral and woody, with that distinct, creamy oolong sweetness rounding it out.

The next steep is too roasty, woody and sour. It tastes better cooled off than warm, when the sweetness comes through more. We give it one more steep, but ultimately this is not for us. It is not a bad tea at all, just not the flavor profile either of us prefers.

I have been cycling through a bunch of Upton samples. This is a medium roasted organic oolong from Japan. Very nice! I steeped this one western method (which is the only way Upton recommends), leaves smell very nice. I’m getting hints of grass and some spice. Taste is very clean and refreshing.
