From Upton Tea Imports

Region: India – Darjeeling

This handcrafted white tea is remarkable on all points. The aroma is complex and heady with deep vegetal notes. The light ecru liquor has delicate, ripe fruity notes and a lingering sweetness in the crisp finish. This rare production is highly recommended for any conoisseur of white tea.

This is very Silver-Needle-like tea. It’s mellow and sweet with a hint of Darjeeling flavor. I can definitely taste first flush here and catch spring flowers aroma.

The reason I didn’t give this tea 100 rating is that only the first 2 infusions really shined. I did 4 and upped the steeping time accordingly but still couldn’t get the intensity of flavor I appreciate. By all means it’s exquisite tea and really deserves attention but I just don’t feel it’s 100% worth the price, maybe next year harvest will live up to it.

I’m adding this to my rotation nevertheless, it’s too good to pass on.
