From Upton Tea Imports

This Hunan province specialty has a lovely character and bright briskness. The dry leaves and liquor have an enticing aroma, with notes of rose and mahogany. The finish has a lingering note of cocoa, leaving a fullness on the tongue.

(Upton carries several Mao Feng varieties. I’m rolling with this one…hope it’s correct.)

Beautiful long, twisty leaves. Reminds me of a quality Assam; cocoa and wheat toast.

Something this good deserves a lengthy and more luscious write-up, but my eyes will not open and this is the best I can muster :)

I see that I drank up a 100g packet of this tea without remarking on it. It is a fine grade of daily drinker at the price. The leaf grade is not fancy enough to use for gongfu and maybe it’s not strong enough anyway. But it is a good tea for making with a basket infuser. Cocoa dominates the aroma and it has nice mouthfeel and smooth somewhat sweet taste. A very nice economical red tea.

Flavors: Cocoa

I like this one pretty good, it was nice and strong and bold.
I’m getting a slight sweet fruity note like apricot or peach, some slight woody notes and a hint of floral with a really strong chocolatey note on the end, it leaves a most wonderful aftertaste of cocoa and rose petals.
Very Good Tea, I may need to get some more.
I give an 80 on this one because I really enjoyed it, I will spend more time with this one and may change the rating.

Flavors: Chocolate, Rose, Wood

Tea of the morning….

Another sample from my last tea adventure from Upton. Originally, I was not going to take the time to add it to the database, but then I got further into the cup. Rich and complex taste. Deep. Kind of a coffee drinker’s tea. It does remind me quite a bit of Black Dragon Pearl tea. But with a hint of chocolate and roses. Yes, this one might need to make a home in my stash for a while. More data needed!

Usual mug method.

200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 13 OZ / 384 ML

This reminds me that I got 5 or 6 Upton Keemun samples a little while ago and I have yet to try any of them. Maybe for breakfast tomorrow.
