First whole leaf white tea I have tried. The aroma of the steeped tea is clean and light with hints of flowers. The flavor was soft, and sweet with something that just hints at fruit. Very full bodied. I steeped it quite a few times at varying temps (130-170) and varying lengths of time, and got a nice cup every time. The buds just seem to keep giving flavor all day. I would be happy to drink this again.

It bugs me that Upton doesn’t give more info on the teas…on most there is no way to know how old they are. If you are going to charge 15 dollars for 40 grams I would like to know that at least.

Longtime tea drinker, lifelong tea student. Lapsang Souchong started it for me. My preference is for single origin teas. Aged oolongs and sheng puerhs being a couple favorites. That said, I will always have a spot in my heart for a cup of PG Tips with a splash of soy milk!

I like fruit and spice, but prefer to keep those relegated to herbal blends. Herbals will always have a place in my cupboard for late night sipping.
