This is a sample from Upton that I am brewing for iced tea. I am using very generous amounts of leaf and brewing it in my porcelain teapot. It’s always nice to have some cold tea on hand to consume at a moments notice. Most will go into a gallon glass jug but of course i have to have a hot cup from both steepings to taste. It is slightly pungent and very light even with the amount of leaf. Not my cup of tea. Maybe when the tea cools down it will improve. I hope…. Well it did. I let the third steep stew. It has potential. I am sure after last nights lovely ‘98 Pu’er nothing would taste good. I had to up the score.

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.
