Another sample from Upton which I am just trying today. This tea has not done very well in the ratings so far but I try not to let other people’s opinions influence me too much.
I first gave it a short steep in the gaiwan for 30 seconds at the recommend temp (175 F). It is light with a refreshing clover and almost cucumber like refreshment.
The second and third steeps are much the same as the first. I let them go on or 2 or so minutes. I am still getting cucumbers and light sweetness. It is very pleasant, but I can also see how you might be hoping it would give out more flavor. It is kind of expensive so I can’t see myself buying more in the future but I have definitely enjoyed trying it.
