I brewed this in the Yixing. Lite cocoa notes. I am not doing backflips over this tea yet. It’s a warm and inviting tea. Maybe the second steeping will do it more justice. I let it steep much longer than the first. The second is a darker liquor. Maybe in my next brewing I will add more leaves and a longer steeping and hope that it improves. This is one of my many samples from Upton. As far as tea intoxication goes, it has delivered a nice morning buzz.

I am an avid surfer, gardener, golfer and freespirit. I have been a tea drinker forever. Tea has provided me with contentment. I love White, Oolong, Green, Black and Pu’er. I do not care for flavored tea and nor will I comment on it.
