From Upton Tea Imports

Wah is located in Kangra valley, in Himachal Pradesh near Dharamshala, (the land of Dalai Lama.) This is one of the first spots where China tea was planted in India. The liquor has a medium ecru color, light pungency and interesting toasty finish. The aroma has a pleasant lemon note, which complements the delicate sweetness in the cup.

Steeping Suggestions: –
Leaf Quantity: 2¼ g/cup
Water Temp: 212° (boiling)
Steep Time: 3 min

Wah Estate teas have been intriguing to me for quite a bit.

This is a very interesting cup of tea. It feels very thick on the mouth, but it’s light and sweet. First I thought the thickness came from what I ate before so I did everything possible to make sure it wasn’t me. It’s definitely the tea.

I don’t quite care for the way it smells. “Light pungency” is just kind of being nice in the description I think and it carries over into the aroma of the tea, not just the taste.

After the sweetness subsides, it kind of has the aftertaste of pita bread. I have no idea how I’m getting pita bread, but it really tastes like astringent pita bread, if that existed. Before that it’s kind of almondy.

Not sure I like it, but it was worth a try.


Another on my list from Upton’s I’ll try with next order if it doesn’t sell out.


Astringent pita bread, eh? Hahaha, some of the flavour descriptions people come up with on here really make me giggle!


I know, beyond some of the hilarious comments there are some marvelous descriptions on here. But seriously, I don’t know if it’s because I was hungry, it really tasted like warmed pita bread!
