From Upton Tea Imports

Only one small lot (less than 40 kg) of this special tea was produced. The dry leaf has a profusion of tips. The dark, red-orange cup has a fragrance and flavor that is sweet and complex. This phenomenal tea is for one of those special tea moments.

A truly black black Chinese tea. According to Upton, less than 40kg of this tea was produced. The price certainly reflects it. It’s a very dark caramel flavor. Not the kind you’d find in a supermarket candy bar, but one you’d make on a stove. Maybe close to the hard crack stage. Very strong initial taste but since it’s a fairly thing tea, it dissipates quickly. Not much lingering around after swallowing. I like this but to be honest, don’t really see why it’s supposed to be so special. It’s high brew temp and thinness intensifies the need to swallow it quickly which does not leave much time for enjoying it. I’d recommend pairing with some sweets (cookies or pastry) and letting it cool down 15 degrees before enjoying.

Not my cup of tea – too smoky and too earthy even for a Keemun, and misses the complexity of ZK98
