I just brewed up the last of this sample from Upton. A generous amount of leaves. I would say 5 tsps. I brewed it in a ceramic teapot for 5 minutes. The aroma is cocoa. I have transfered the first 2 pots into a gallon glass jug for iced tea. I am drinking a cup of the 3rd steeping now. It’s nice. Very similar to for first tasting of this tea. I the iced tea should be strong. It’s chilling outside now in the 40 degree weather we are having in Margate, N.J. I may change the score for the better after I drink the new brew….

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.
